The new path, linking Exeter Road to the Exe Estuary Trail is a welcome addition to the trail, which has become an established route for local walkers, cyclist, runners and families alike.

Local teams of volunteers helped with the creation of the path, planting the trees and hedges which will form part of the landscape. The National Trust is committed to working with local partners to open up local green spaces.

Coastal Recycling were amongst the funders, who comprised of Sustrans, Dr and Mrs A Darlington Charitable Trust, the National Trust Raleigh Centre and 106 Development funding from East Devon District Council and Exmouth Town Council.

What do the National Trust think of the project?

We are really excited to see the path is already getting so much use. We’ve had lots a great feedback from people. It’s a great example of good partnership working and community support. We are really keen to look at opportunities like these and work with local groups to see where we can add value to people’s local green spaces.
