25 Walks around Teignmouth and Dawlish

June 29, 2013

25 Walks around Teignmouth and Dawlish is a full-colour walking guide, with a huge variety of rambles from town trails to longer rural walks. There are a good number of walks on the coast and some attractive country rambles. Distances range from two to seven miles. All of the rambles are graded, with information on appropriate public transport as well as where to park if you are taking your car. Each route description gives the ascent and descent.25walksfrontcover_2_thumb

There are some delightful and informative historical snippets to guide you on your way, and the photographs in the book – and this is a rambling group with some notable photographers – give a real taste of what you are going to see. The directions and the maps are enough to follow all of the rambles without any difficulty.

I know all of these walks very well and I am particularly pleased to see a book of rambles covering an area that has badly needed an up-to-date walking guide.

The sixty-page book is available for £3.50 including postage and packing (cheque payable to “Teignmouth and Dawlish Ramblers”) from Teignmouth and Dawlish Ramblers, 21 Southdown Road, Dawlish, Devon EX7 0LB.

Ten out of ten for this very readable and useful rambling guide.

And if you are looking for a longer walk in the same area, why not try the 14-mile Teignmouth and Dawlish Way, which links the two towns by way of the quiet rural hinterland on the coastal side of the Haldon Hills. The Teignmouth and Dawlish group of the Ramblers is the publisher of the official guide. Available from the above address for £2.50 including post and packing.TDWAYFront_Cover_thumb

    The Teignmouth and Dawlish Way has now been updated to an 18 mile circular walk. The latest edition adds a 4 mile section from Dawlish to Teignmouth . A real day challenge with the best recorded time being just over 4 hours by Kevin H. from the local group.

    Hi Malcolm, yes I meant to point that out. I have put a T and D Way page on my website at http://www.johnbainbridgewriter.com so more info there. It seems to get a lot of hits, 4 hours is a good time.
