Point of Interest

Bickleigh Castle,Mill Railway Centre

There are 2 Bickleighs in Devon,one near Plymouth and this one,near Tiverton. Perhaps to avoid confusion,the old railway station was called Cadeleigh.

Bickleigh is known for its bridge across the Exe,its 15th century castle,an old mill,a Railway Centre and two popular pubs.

There are several circular walks from Bickleigh,all quite strenuous and following some paths but mostly quiet,narrow lanes.

Walk 1 Bickleigh Castle (5.4 miles)

This moderate walk follows part of the scenic Exe Valley Way and passes Bickleigh Castle with its 6th century chapel,arguably the oldest building in Devon - access by appointment only.

During the Winter months wellies are strongly recommended.

There are no pubs en route and the walk has one steep climb.

Walk 3 via Cadeleigh (5.1 miles)

Bickleigh bridge over troubled water

A most delightful walk of moderate difficulty to Cadeleigh - after a wet spell stretches along the river need wellies.

 There is still a pub in Cadeleigh, the Cadeleigh Arms ,now owned by the community and well worth a visit!
