Walking Close to Exmouth

Walking Close to Exmouth

by: Clive Brown
One of a range of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are simple and detailed and include clear pencil drawn sketch maps. This guide describes ten varied and interesting circular routes in the countryside close to Exmouth. The distances vary between 3.5 and 7 miles.

Exmouth has its origins in the small port at the end of the Exe Estuary which was always overshadowed by the superior and busier facilities at Exeter and Topsham. The fortunes of the town began to improve during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. Wealthy tourists unable to visit continental Europe flocked to Exmouth to take advantage of its gentle climate, healthy sea air and salty local medicinal waters. With the arrival of the railway the town grew into a prosperous seaside resort.
