Rockbeare Footpath
Public Footpath leading to Rockbeare

This easy walk explores recently opened paths and the tranquil village of Rockbeare.

There is no pub en route but read below.

Just before the Cranbrook Education Campus the turn right into an old lane which leads to the old Roman road between Exeter and Dorchester.

Cross over with care , turn left and near the vet follow the footpath on your right across a field to Rockbeare meaning 'a group of trees for Rooks'.

If you happen to be passing the Jack and the Green pub you have 'accidentally' missed the turn by 0.1 of a mile or 2 minutes.

When you join the residential road, turn right, cross the bridge and at the triangle bear right past the Post Office into Parsons Lane. Follow this back to Cranbrook.

Unfortunately the walk is not suitable for prams or young children.
