An Upper Otter potter
Start: The village of Rawridge. Meet under footpath sign at entrance to Ottervale Close, which is the first right turn after entering the village from the Honiton direction. (OS 115 SY 200 063) 4.5 miles, around 2hrs 15 mins.
There is plenty of parking in the Close itself and also in several spots along the road that runs through the village.
After crossing the infant Otter, we climb steadily up to and then south along the whaleback of Hartridge, with lovely views on either side, before descending to the pretty isolated hamlet of Beacon. Here, we turn back down into the Otter valley towards Pound Farm, before heading north along the bridleway that runs through the ancient Mobuns estate and then back over the bridge to the cars.
