Geo-Trips :: A walk along the River Exe and minor roads back

Between Stoke Canon and Netherexe

A walk from Stoke Canon level crossing, Sun, 25 Oct 2015 by David Smith

Apart from the first picture, taken on a separate walk through the cemetery, these pictures record a circular walk from Stoke Canon level crossing. North along the river to Netherexe church, then back along minor roads. A nice level walk with the added interest of seeing the remote church of Netherexe

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
