#NaturallyInspiring Torbay and don't forget South Devon is celebrated with this week’s photographs by Stephen Coombes. The retired bus driver, who lives in Torbay, spends a great deal of his spare time taking photographs of our #NaturallyInspiring Torbay and South Devon. In this feature, Stephen takes us with him on a cycle ride (with chocolate and energy bars, water and, of course, camera) to idyllic scenes just on Torbay's doorstep.  Stephen would like to dedicate his pictures to the NHS frontline and support staff for all the tremendous life-saving work they are doing. Our Heroes!
