Tim Ryan added Tivsil four, a new walk from Tiverton to Silverton

Walk this route

A pleasant route that does miss out on the usually excellent walk along the banks of the Exe. But a good option after heavy rain. The route also misses out on the pub and cafe at Bickleigh....

There's a level crossing a mile south of Silverton which demands some care and attention, as it's an uncontrolled crossing straight across the tracks used by HST trains....

The southern section between Silverton & Bickleigh is generally on small roads/lanes, although some of them are too small for vehicles, so at least quiet and generally traffic-free. It also includes a noticeable climb of a hill north of Silverton, which does provide some pleasant views south towards the coast. The northern half of the route between Bickleigh and Tiverton is mostly on decent footpaths beside the River Exe....

As the path meets the road by Stoke Post is the first small section of the road which feels a bit less safe - 30mph is not religiously adhered to. This looks on the map as if you start from the cross roads, but you need to follow the road for a few extra metres past the house Westings and then take the signposted path (see picture 4)....

This was a very enjoyable route, which I found quite easy to walk - no difficult assents, obstacles or uneven ground. The route takes you through gorgeous and leafy sections of the Devon countryside, and the river Exe is frequent company. Around the Woodrow barton area the route directed the walker along a public byway, but as the photo blow shows there were signs explicitly stating 'no throughway' and 'cows only'. If somebody can explain how I perhaps misread the signs/directions, then the route should be kept at 4 stars, if not, it perhaps should receive a lower rating?...

A very pleasant route following quiet country lanes and byways for the most part. No real problems found, but some steep climbs are involved....

The route starts with picturesque Shobrooke Park before heading across a mix of lanes and fields to Raddon Hill. After Raddon Hill the route winds down into Thorverton using more lanes and across pretty green fields. The route takes you past Exe Valley Farm shop - good breakfasts, lunches and coffees - before crossing the busy Exeter-Tiverton road and winding through quiet lanes into Silverton....

Most of this route is beautiful and enjoyable, but unfortunately it depends on extended walking on the A396. This is a busy road with no paths alongside it for extended sections. I am uploading an alternative route that I walked and some other suggestions....

However as it stands there is a section which goes along a private road through "Lower Roach" from SS 96117 03638 to SS 96293 04538. There is however a delightful path from SS 96101 04242 which by-passes the private road and is included in TIVSIL two....
