Exe Valley Way

52 miles (84 km)

The walk starts in Starcross on the banks of the River Exe Estuary and heads through Powderham Deer Park and then along the Exeter Canal to Exeter.
The next section continues along the River Exe to Tiverton via Thorverton and Bickleigh.
The final section takes you from Tiverton into the Exmoor National Park where you will pass through Dulverton and Hawkridge before the finish at Exfordin Somerset. This section passes close to the old clapper bridge at Tarr Steps near Dulverton and Withypool. It's well worth a short detour if you have time. Around here you'll also cross the picturesque five arched Landacre Bridge over the River Barle.
