Linear Walks


In our spring and summer programmes we organise a monthly linear walk, mainly on a Friday but it can be on other days as well, along one of the many regional trails in or around our area. This always involves car sharing and some additional driving. For this reason you will need to confirm attendance a few days in advance with the walk leader to ensure there is enough space for everyone. Dogs may be allowed but by arrangement only.

  • East Devon Way 2002 and 2007

​On the Macmillan Way

The linear walks organisers are going to take a break for 2020 but hope to be back with a new trail for 2021.                                     

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.
