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.

Feasibilty Study

otter_trail_studySustrans have published a Feasibiliy Study into the Otter Valley Trail.  Paul Hawkins, the Devon Area Manager for Sustrans, writes:

“The East Devon countryside is a beautiful experience on foot and cycle, and the concept of linking up these communities with a safe route is very appealing and would provide both tourism and local commuting benefits. Delivery of a whole route would be complex, involve many stakeholders and take many years, but with careful planning sections of the route could be delivered to the benefit of local communities.”
