Pupils at The King’s School, Ottery St Mary are proposing a new shared use cycleway which follows the old railway track starting at Feniton through to Ottery St Mary. This will eventually link up with a continuation through Tipton St John and onto Sidmouth. This web site is used to help you access up-to-date information about progress.
The Rotary Club of Otter Valley are organising two Charity Cycle Rides starting from Ottery St Mary on Sunday 24th April.
There will be routes of 11 and 25 miles available.
Riders are encouraged to raise sponsorship – half of which will go to Rotary’s charities and half to a charity of your choice.
More details and an entry form on our Events page.
Sustrans have published a Feasibiliy Study into the Otter Valley Trail. Paul Hawkins, the Devon Area Manager for Sustrans, writes:
