Walk - Avocet Line: Topsham Station to Powderham & Starcross
6.2 miles (10.0 km)
Topsham Railway Station - EX3 0DS Exmouth Railway Station - EX8 1BZ
A day-long adventure on land and water that can be shortened, taking in the best of the Exe Estuary, internationally important for its birds and wildlife. Take the ferry to Topsham Lock and walk to Starcross via Powderham Castle, where herds of deer can be seen grazing in the stately parkland, and take another ferry across to Exmouth, returning to Topsham by train. The last remaining pumping station of Brunel's doomed atmospheric railway can be seen at Starcross, and many fine Georgian and Victorian buildings.
