East Devon Way

A 40 mile route that starts at Exmouth and follows the estuary of the River Exe to Lympstone and then turns east over the commons and rolling hills of the East Devon AONB via Harpford, Sidbury, Farway and Colyton to Lyme Regis. It covers a wide variety of landscapes; estuary, high open commons, woodlands and quiet river valleys. Walking is generally not difficult but the route does include some quite sharp climbs.

Avocet Line

The Avocet Line is the railway line in Devon connecting Exeter with Exmouth Link . It was originally built by the London and South Western Railway. The line follows the Exe Estuary for most of its route, giving views of the estuary. The line is named after the Pied Avocet, which live in the estuary. Opened in 1861.
