On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

River Erme (East) to Cockleridge

Erme may relate to a man called ‘Earma’. The village of Kingston, a short walk from Wonwell Beach, provides a good starting point for this section. The village of Ringmore is where R.C.Sherriff wrote his play Journey’s End. Burgh Island is well worth a visit, the hotel being a supreme example of Art Deco. The island is believed to have originally been occupied by monks who fished for pilchards and brewed mead. There is a seasonal ferry from Cockleridge at Bigbury to Bantham (01548 561196). Alternatively there a number of local taxi firms. The Sloop Inn at Bantham is recommended
