Walk 1 Uffculme to Culmstock (6.8 miles)

This delightful walk follows a well defined footpath along the river Culm into Culmstock.

River Culm

It passes the Culm Valley Inn,just before you cross the Culm into Culmstock.

.From Culmstock turn right into Silver Street.

It returns via Ashill passing its pub , the Ashill Inn

It includes quite a steep climb to Gaddon Downwith - however the views are quite stunning.

There are several options:

a) loop back onto the path from Uffculme by crossing a footbridge. This avoids a steep climb onto Gaddon Down

b) by-pass Culmstock and cross the bridge then continue to Ashill (6.1 miles)
