In Search of Sir Walter Raleigh 9 miles - Walking Festival

Monday 24th September 10:30am to 3:30pm
Budleigh Salterton – In Search of Sir Walter Raleigh 9 miles

A mix of disused railway line, open moorland, a beautiful lily-padded pool, a reservoir and riverside, together with sight of Walter Raleigh's birthplace make this a most memorable walk. We visit the church Walter Raleigh attended before following the river to the seafront and the spot where the famous painting "The Boyhood of Raleigh" was painted by Sir John Millais. The local museum is well worth a visit.

Start 10:30am Town car park, Station Road, Budleigh Salterton EX9 6RN SY061820
