The walk starts at the River Teign Bridge in the car park just off Exeter Road on the outskirt of Kingsteignton. This is a great walk along the edge of the Teign for several miles, travelling along part of the Templars Way. The wildlife on this section is magnificent, with the possible glimpse of kingfishers and many rabbits and hares; and at certain times of the year the odd salmon leaping out the river.

Once past the river section we move towards the quiet village of Chudleigh Knighton before dropping down a bridleway to a small footbridge high above the Teign. This then leads into open fields, only interrupted by the crossing of the Kingsteignton to Chudleigh road before climbing high up over the fields to look back on the river and the spectacular panoramic views over the whole area.

After reaching the end of the fields we get back onto the quiet country lanes, leading us back into the new town of Kingsteignton to the Five Lane crossroads and then back along the Exeter Road to the River Teign Bridge.

An easy walk, busy at first as car park and initial walk very popular with dog walkers. Go early to get a space at weekends, car park is free. Dual carriageway noise prevalent for about third of walk. Between waypoint 18-19 I feel a waypoint is missing. After crossing the stile, bear right, up hill, following the boundary of the field. In the top right hand corner of the field is another stile, cross this stile, follow the footpath sign pointing left. Go through the next gate at a junction of fields and look straight ahead to see the wooden gate of way point 19.

Lovely walk along the River and the lanes on the return were very pleasant. (The last mile on the main road not so good) Leisurely walk with nothing serious to climb. One problem with instructions at number 8 as there was no gate on the far side of this field. We continued (via the river bank) into the NEXT field and all was OK from this point - i.e. diagonally across to a small wooden gate. 14 and 15 are OK, but think a simple instruction to follow the path going under the road and then turn left would have been clearer ! Sorry to be critical - just hope to help others. Really enjoyed our walk.
