Take the train for a pub walk
Meet at Exmouth Train Station at 10.15am. Outward via train, dep. 10.23am, arr. Newcourt 10.40am. Start at Newcourt Train Station (OS 192, SX 961 903), 10.40am, 5.5 miles, 3.5 hours (to include lunch).
A walk from Newcourt station over the Clyst River Bridge to the village of Clyst St Mary. Then through fields to the village of Sowton with it’s grand church and thatched village hall before returning to Clyst St Mary for lunch at the Half Moon Inn. After lunch, a gentle half hour or so takes us to Digby and Sowton station for the train back to Exmouth. This is an opportunity to explore in detail places we usually see fleeting from the car or train. The going is easy with only gentle climbs. It may be muddy in places if it has been wet. We suggest that if you don’t have a railcard, you travel in groups of 4 to take advantage of a “Groupsave” train ticket - buy a return from Exmouth to Digby and Sowton.
