Walk 5 Franklin Totnes Trail (5.6 miles)

Difficulty
Junction,Bowden Lane & FishChowter's Lane
Where Bowden Lane meets FishChowter's Lane

In 2017 a new trail has been created by the Totnes Ramblers,called the Franklin Totnes Trail - see map .

It was named in memory of Edward Franklin who donated £100,000 towards the project ; the funds have been used to make the tracks,footpaths and bridle paths more accessible during the winter.

trafficSome stretches along country lanes are subject to heavy traffic. Because of this,we propose the following variation (marked YELLOW). Take care crossing the A381!

Where Bowden Lane joins a busy lane ,turn left (not right) and after 2 minutes turn right into a quiet lane and continue ,crossing the A381,until you rejoin the trail at Tristford Cross.

The views are quite magnificent!

This ranks as one of the most exhilirating walks in the Southhams.
