The Saxons,Danes,Alfred the Great ,William the Conqueror,Henry VI,Roundheads and Cavaliers all play a part in its often violent history.
During the middle ages a castle was built,now in private hands.

 

This easy walk passes Rougemont Castle & Cricklepit Mill,the last of the nine water mills which in the past ensured Exeter's prosperity.

Information panels are positioned along the walk.

Caution:GPS signals are often inaccurate between tall buildings. It might be worth printing the map.
