To East Budleigh
To Otterton and Mill
A walk of 3 miles described by local walk leader Steve Hagger
The walk starts outside the Tourist Information Centre (TIC) in Fore
Street. Start facing the office, turn to your left and walk along the
pavement and very soon you will reach the promenade that runs
along by the beach.
Pass by the red phone box, keep right and continue forward to Lime
Kiln Car Park.
Walk along the path to the far side of the car park and turn LEFT at
fingerpost signed ‘Public Footpath’. Follow this sign down the side of
the car park, past the BBQ stands and to fingerpost signed “Ladram Bay
3 ½ miles”. Continue forward on the path through the gate.
Walk on for ½ mile passing viewing platforms and a bird hide until you
reach a bridge. Don’t cross the bridge but turn LEFT, walk along road.
(You can extend your walk and continue by crossing over the White
Bridge along the path to the historic working Water Mill in Otterton).
The road bends left and just before top of hill turn RIGHT up bank,
(or follow road round to right) and cross East Budleigh Road by speed
restriction sign. Take footpath immediately in front of you climbing 21
steps. Continue forward on old railway track which gradually rises and
After about ½ mile the track finishes. Take sloping path on left hand
side to reach road. Turn RIGHT and go downhill passing Stanley Mews,
named after Stanley Murch, the last Station Master at the station that
was located here. When you reach the public park follow the footpath
through the park emerging at the Public Hall.
Walk straight on to Budleigh’s only traffic lights, cross the road ahead
and turn LEFT. You are now in the High Street. Why not visit one of the
places of refreshment or shops, after a few minutes (or longer if you
have lingered) you will be back at the TIC.
