Walking in South Devon

Message Board

Unfortunately, due to the forecast of heavy rain all day on Sunday 21st January and potential flooding of the road near the start, the short walk suggested by Katheine has now been cancelled.

 

There is no long walk as the one submitted by Andy originally planned for 21st January has now been put back to 28th January.

Sidmouth Hill and the River Sid

On Sunday 10th September Peter and Pam stood in for Tony who was unable to lead his walk from the top of Sidmouth due to an injured knee.


Using the same starting point, the NT car park adjacent to the Norman Lockyer observatory, they welcomed 14 people who had turned up despite the threat of rain and high winds on an autumnal day.


The route took them to the cliff-edge for extensive views over Sidmouth and the coast beyond. They then descended into Sidmouth before walking up by the River Sid and its parkland before turning right for Fortescue. The strenuous part of the walk involved the ascent up Griggs Lane to Soldiers Hill where lunch was taken followed by an easy return through the woods on Sidmouth Hill Hill. Fortunately, the promised rain only started after the return to the car park.
