Walk 1 West Hill to Ottery St Mary (7.9 miles)
This long but delightful and most popular walk initially following peaceful green lanes (Toadpit Lane & Birdcage Lane) offers many beautiful views and takes you along the tranquil banks of the Otter.
At Birdcage you follow an ancient perhaps pre-Roman track with spectacular views of Hembury Castle .
It wasn't so peaceful on July 17th 1980 when the pilot of Viscount had to make an emergency landing in a field near the dismantled railway; thanks to his skill and local knowledge the only casualties were two sheep.
