Walk Description:

We’ll kick start our senses (and our body) with a warm up in the Cafe car park before getting into our stride by crossing the Tarka trail onto an area of open ground prior to joining the SWCP along the edge of the Taw Estuary towards Instow with great views across to Chivenor and the entrance to Velator creek. In the far distance we can see both Saunton & Braunton Down.  The going is easy and flat albeit soft underfoot during the winter. We will navigate our way around the perimeter of the old power station taking in further views of the white house and Crow Point while watching and listening to the local wild life such as egret’s fishing in the nearby stream. On reaching the outskirts of Instow along a quiet beach we follow the path past the cricket ground and return along the Tarka trail at a more leisurely pace and complete our cool down and stretches before seeking refreshments in Sandbanks Cafe.  


Please Note:  This is a gentle walk and all on the flat. It should be reasonably good walking but sometimes the wind can be a bit stiff.
