Venture further along the Tarka Trail
A new leaflet has been produced to encourage walkers to venture further on to the Tarka Trail in North Devon.
It promotes 11 circular walks along easy to follow way-marked loops that take people off the beaten track into wildlife rich landscapes and remote villages and hamlets.
Most people are familiar with the 30-mile stretch between Braunton and Meeth, but the Tarka Trail is actually a 180 mile, figure of eight, route.
Over most of its length the trail follows rights of way and quiet roads through coastal and upland landscapes made famous in Henry Williamson’s iconic novel Tarka the Otter.
The leaflet has been put together by the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Biosphere Service, with the help of local walkers, and has identified walks with stunning views and lesser-known features of historic interest.

It will be available from libraries, tourist information centres, direct from the county council and through other leisure outlets from mid July.
Other walking guides to the Tarka Trail are also available, including Tarka Line Walks, which describes more than 20 walking loops linked to the railway stations on the Tarka Railway line between Exmouth and Barnstaple.
