Path along the river Clyst
Path along the river Clyst


Distance:4.5 miles

This popular rivided route includes Gent's farm shop, the river Clyst, the ruins of a mill, a Roman Road and the 'Blue Bridge'.

Country lane names like Mill Lane, Tithebarn, Mosshayne, Langaton, Blackhorse hint at a fascinating past threatened by modern development.

The mill must have been very important as many lanes appear to head towards its current position.

Roman coins have been found in the area and it is said that Blackhorse lane dates back to pre roman times.

Unfortunately, much of the present countryside has been earmarked for future development.
