Northam Burrows

Potwalloping festival at Westward Ho!, north Devon, UK dates from 1800s where local people ventured down to Westward Ho! beach to throw back pebbles that had fallen from the ridge during the winter storms. This is still performed today, but has developed into a larger event with displays, local crafts, stalls and entertainment. Without the ridge the sea would wash in across the Northam Burrows and the land would be totally lost.
