A very pleasant walk through Devon's Avon valley and Silveridge Wood.

Loddiswell (Lodiswille in Domesdaybook) lies high above the valley.

Its church (St Michaels) dates back to the 14 century - the font is part of the original 11th century building.

Roman coins have been found north of the village.

 After heavy rain wellies may be advisable.
