Walk 2 Obelisk & Otterton Mills (3.5 miles)



This delightful and easy walk starts at the car park in East Budleigh and takes you past the church where Sir Walter Raleigh's father was church warden.

The route includes Bicton Obelisk & Church then returns via Otterton Mill (well worth a visit) , along the Otter and an old aqueduct.

Please note:There might be warnings that the path along the otter is closed but cunning walkers have created a small if not muddy diversion.
