Discover the scenic route into the very heart of the far west through North Devon and North Cornwall along the A39 Atlantic Highway
History of the Atlantic Highway Website
In its heyday the Atlantic Highway Web Site was the most successful tourism website for North Cornwall, attracting over 1.6 million hits per year. As with many other things technology related, the speed of development of the internet very soon lead to more sophisticated web sites and highly targeted marketing which, in turn, eventually diminished the popularity of the Atlantic Highway Website. However, it still attracts a number of viewers who seem to appreciate the vast amount of information the site holds on the coastal area between Barnstaple in North Devon and Newquay in mid-Cornwall. The main body of the site is now hosted on 'Google Sites' to facilitate those still wishing to access information about the Atlantic Highway, its coast, surrounding countryside, villages and towns. Now a little out of date, but it still has its followers!
Discover the natural features, historic attractions and dramatic coastal scenery to be found on and near the Atlantic Highway as it follows the line of the coast between Barnstaple in Devon to Newquay in Cornwall.
