Walk - Hole House & Edge Barton
3.1 miles (5.0 km)
Branscombe Village Hall Car Park - EX12 3DB Branscombe Village Hall
Easy - There are some short stretches of ascent and descent, but nothing prolonged or steep. Footpaths may be muddy after rain.
A lovely walk through fields and woods around the picturesque hamlet of Branscombe, with its thatched cottages and workshops. Almost every footstep offers up a fascinating glimpse of Branscombe history - from the Stone Age men who made their tools with local flints, through sixth and seventh century Celtic saints and medieval Saxons, Normans and Crusaders, to the sixteenth century, when most of the village was built.
