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

Shaldon to Starcross (Ferry)

The twisting Path between Torquay and Shaldon has several tiring ascents and descents as it passes through open fields and high, thick woodland before easing on the descent to the mouth of the Teign. After a short ferry crossing you can enjoy easy walking along Teignmouth’s promenade, which offers a rest after the more strenuous stretches earlier in the day. The Path follows part of the National Cycle Network on the way to Dawlish Warren, which includes some road walking. Train enthusiasts will particularly enjoy this section. Take time to look out for the wildlife of Dawlish Warren’s National Nature Reserve. From Starcross, the walk can be extended up river and along the banks of the Exeter Canal into the heart of the City passing two well known pubs, the Turf Locks and the Double Locks.
