Saturday, 10 August 2019 - 10.20 am - WALK - 11 miles

Event date: 
10th August 2019

Otter Source to Mouth Stage 3 –  Weston  (Honiton) to Newton Poppleford

Meet at  Sidmouth Road bus stop in Honiton (roundabout near Tesco (OS115 ST 153 996) at 10.20 ready to walk about a mile to rejoin where we left off Stage 2 near Weston Cross.  For most people, getting the 09.27 No 9 bus from Newton Poppleford which arrives at Honiton at 10.17 should work.  Total distance, including walking to Weston is about 11 miles and will take about 6 hours, including stops.

From Weston we will take a rather noisy route along the old A30 before heading along quieter footpaths to Ottery St Mary.  We are thereafter never far from the river as we go through Tipton and Harpford and finally reach Newton Poppleford. 

Due to a re-route of part of the walk, there won’t be opportunities to buy refreshments on this walk, so please make sure you bring a picnic and plenty of fluid, as this is an approximately 11 mile walk.

Please check the OVA website in case the bus time or meeting point changes!
