Proposed Cycle Route – Feniton to Ottery St Mary

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.

Between 80 and 100 residents flocked to Ottery’s Land of Canaan car park on 21 September for the start of a family cycle ride to Escot Park.

The event, organised by the Otter Trail cycle way campaign group, made an impact on the streets of Ottery, with the colourful “peloton” doing a quick and dramatic tour of Ottery town, before heading back to the Land of Canaan car park and over the new Connect-2 bridge.
