No dogs allowed
Do not walk if you are feeling unwell. Carry your own hand sanitiser. In case of an emergency ensure you have with you a face mask and first aid pack.
Inevitably, the route will go through gates and over stiles that other people will have touched. It may have narrow sections that mean you will be passing close to other people.
This walk starts and ends in Tiverton at junction of Huxley Lane and A49. We walk through the fields, to Tilson Lock, crossing the canal and up to Bunbury from where we take footpaths to Peckforton, through the woods to Stanner Nab and down to Pennsylvania Wood.
From there we join the Sandstone Trail to Beeston castle and follow paths to Wharton’s lock and then along the canal back to Tiverton.
There will be an extended coffee stop but no lunch on this walk – please bring whatever you need to keep you going until the Picnic.
Sorry no dogs as the route passes through fields containing livestock.
