Meet: Newton Poppleford Playing Field CP (OS 115, SY 089 899) ‘click here for map’
The railway may have gone for over 50 years but much of the route is still followable. We will look at the station site in Newton Poppleford and then follow the track up the River Otter to Tipton St John, where there was a junction, station and level crossing. Up river to the 5-arch bridge and Tipton Mill, then return along the route of the Sidmouth branch to Harpford. Return over the Red Bridge to the start, or optional extension to continue on the railway track through Harpford Woods to the Bowd for a pub lunch and back to the start by bus.
