This walk takes you to Killerton, a grand Georgian house with beautiful landscape gardens and parkland now in the care of The National Trust. There is lots to explore and is a whole day out in itself.
The route includes travel along lanes sunken between high hedgebanks, known as hollow ways; these are often very ancient routes. And you will enjoy fine views across Stoke Woods, the Exe Valley and the Raddon Hills. And from the high point of the ridge you can see across the Culm Valley and catch your first distant sight of the wooded volcanic hill where Killerton, your destination on the edge of the Clyst Valley, is located.
Halfway along the route you pass through the village of Huxham. Huxham was a medieval parish and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. The church is of 14th Century construction, but has an earlier Norman font.
