Terrain: One moderate hill at the start then relatively level.
Dulverton to Marsh Bridge - Approx 3.5 miles
The Route: Start the walk from Bank Square in Dulverton.
From the church entrance take the path to the right of the church leading to the east end of the building. At a
junction here continue straight ahead uphill onto a tarmac path. When reaching a lane turn left, still climbing
uphill, passing an old school house on the left. Bear right here up a track towards Broford. Continue steeply up
the track through the woods following a well trodden route for about a mile, the trees finally thinning to reveal
spectacular views over the valley to your left. |
You finally reach a bench with a foot path to your left sign posted “Marsh Bridge”. Take this path and drop down through Looseall woods for about ¾ mile eventually reaching the road. Cross straight over bearing left towards Marsh Bridge, cross over the River Barle and continue down the country lane for about 250 yards. You then turn left picking up a footpath sign posted to “Dulverton”.
The path leads through Kennel Farm and then through some gates to enter woodland. Follow the path back through the woods following the banks of the river Barle for about ¾ of a mile eventually reaching Horner Cottage where you bear left down the hill. Keep bearing left until you reach the main road and cross the bridge back into Dulverton.
