Linear Walks


For many years in our spring and summer programmes we have organised linear walks, along the many regional trails in or around our area involving car sharing and additional driving.  The team decided to take a break in 2020 from organising and invite other members to take up the challenge for future years.

​Trails completed so far:

  • East Devon Way 2002 and 2007
  • Channel to Channel 2002/03 and 2015
  • Jurassic Coast 2003/04/05

​On the Macmillan Way   

In addition we reguarly walk on parts of the South West Coast Path, UK's longest National Trail, with it's 630 miles of superb coastline, heritage, wildlife and geology,



or the East Devon Way, a 40 mile inland alternative to the SWCP, between Exmouth and Lyme Regis, through East Devon's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  The East Devon Way is also walked reguarly in September each year as part of the Sidmouth and East Devon Walking Festival.

and occasionally the Two Moors Way, Devon's Coast to Coast Walk, 116 miles from Wembury on the south coast to Lynmouth on the north coast via Dartmoor and Exmoor and through some remote and beautiful countryside.
