Walk 1 to Nymet Rowland (5 miles)
A This easy and peaceful walk offers numerous wide views of distant hills and churches.
The climbs are steady and paths are generally well maintained.
B After crossing the Yeo on a longish wooden bridge the route cuts across an old Roman Fort near Bury Barton,where you can still see an old Chapel.
It continues following lanes meandering through gently rolling fields with glimpses of Dartmoor and Coldridge Church high up on a mound.
C From Nymet Rowland,with its little church snug against a farm the route joins an old Victorian path to Lapford Station.
We highly recommend this walk if you are in the area
