Countisbury figure-of-eight walk

Walk start: Countisbury Distance: 3.0 miles (4.8 km) Difficulty: Moderate


An interesting walk that crosses a variety of landscapes, including the rare opportunity to walk along the bottom of a deep Devon combe without having to wade through a river. The walk goes through a large sessile oak woodland noted for its beauty, traverses an ancient linhay and passes alongside one of the most important Iron Age forts in Devon. There are panoramic views reaching from the Bristol Channel, across the East Lyn Valley and over to the high parts of Exmoor above Brendon.
