“The Lower Otter Valley”
A linear walk that starts and ends on the 157 bus route. Start: 157 bus stop opposite Back Lane, Newton Poppleford (which leads to the Recreation Ground Car Park) OS 115, SY 084 897. 7½ miles, 3 hours.
From Newton Poppleford, we walk south along the west bank of the River Otter where we will see evidence of the beavers. We cross the river to walk above and around Otterton to reach the east bank above Clamour Bridge, then rejoin the west bank at White Bridge to take us to the estuary, ending with a walk along the promenade to the 157 bus stop and/or a venue for lunch. Lovely views throughout.
