4.7 miles (7.6 km)
Lympstone Station Topsham Station
A level stroll along the Exe Estuary Cycle Trail to Exeter's one-time main port, with its fine Regency waterfront buildings reflecting Topsham's Dutch connections, brought by William of Orange when he arrived to take up the throne. The route passes the elegant grounds and buildings of Nutwell Court and the Lympstone Commando Training Centre before leaving the riverbank to head into the town over the historic Clyst Bridge. Pause for lunch in Topsham before catching the train back to Lympstone.
