Description

This is a delightful, safe and predominantly off-road route which links the ancient wool town of Chudleigh with the Victorian bathing resort of Dawlish. It uses footpaths, bridleways and historic Devon lanes. Where minor roads are followed they are narrow, generally carry light traffic but, except in towns, lack pavements or lighting. While surfaces are generally sound and often well drained (whether mud, stone/gravel, part or fully metalled,) this can change unpredictably. Gates, styles and varying track widths are also to be expected (see Review for fuller details). Overall the route is not recommended for wheels. Sadly, measures necessarily introduced to counter damage from illegal Traveller sites, Raves and inappropriate and illegal use by off-road bikes etc will create access problems for mobility wheels or larger pushchairs.
Alternative minor road routes can be found readily from the OS map though inevitably these do not offer the same tranquillity and oneness with the natural environment which makes this walk particularly outstanding. There are no public toilets, pubs or food shops between Chudleigh and Dawlish. Mobile signal was never noticeably lost

Surveys

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.
