Torbay’s #NaturallyInspiring Torre Abbey is celebrated with this week’s photographs by Stephen Coombes.

Retired bus driver Stephen, 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 shares the beauty of the Bay and surrounding area with Torbay Weekly readers.

This week, Stephen shares his images of Torre Abbey, the Spanish Barn, Torre Abbey Sands and some welcome signs of spring in Torre Abbey Gardens.
