Route: This linear route will start at the Double Locks pub and you will walk along the canal path towards Bridge Road swing bridge. On Bridge Road you will turn left and join Countess Wear Road (on the left) and follow the paths back along the River Exe as far as Miller`s Crossing Bridge, where you will cross the river and walk back to the Double Locks along the opposite side of the river. There will be live music, entertainment and refreshments along the way.
Refreshments: There will be water and chocolate provided at the start of the walk, and on completion of the walk you will be welcomed back with a FREE refreshing pint and hot pasty!
