Sidbury,White Cross & Sidbury Castle

Walk 1 White Cross (4.2 miles )

This pleasant walk consists of a steady but easy climb through an almost alpine landscape. At White Cross the views of Woodbury Common and Dartmoor are quite breathtaking - not surprisingly,the East Devon Way follows this delightful route.

On return you descend into a rolling valley of an almost forgotten Devon,past Sidbury Castle,a large Iron Age hill fort.
