On this page are a series of walks that you can take around Bradninch, kindly
shared by Dave Kennedy, Sue Jackson and Jim Porteous. Please feel free to share any walks that you have
" I have been in Bradninch for twenty years and have always been a keen walker having
previously been on the Dartmoor Rescue Group. When i go for a walk I love to explore the
historical points of interest on the way. I also like to look out for the various flora and
fauna on the route, we are so lucky living here with Buzzards overhead, kingfishers
on the Culm and orchids in the wetland to name but a few. Enjoy the walks, enjoy
the fresh air and remember to look around you and see all there is to see"".
" When I arrived in Bradninch twenty years ago I didn't know anybody or many local places. After joining Ramblers in Devon I found myself exploring further afield. The pandemic has given me the time and opportunity to really get to know our local highways and byways much more. It's been fun to show others what is there on our doorstep"".
" I have lived in Bradninch for ten years and, with Ms L.Honeybee, enjoy finding new walks in the area. I have edited the Bradninch Magazine, am a local town councillor, and keep a keen eye on Exeter City FC."
DID YOU KNOW?
The Bradninch eagle is a key icon to look for when walking around Bradninch. The Bradninch 'eagle' seal was given to the burgesses of the town in about 1120 by the illegitimate son of Henry 1, Arthur Reginald (Earl of Cornwall and Lord of Bradninch),
You will see roads and landmarks associated with the history of the town. For example Sainthill was named after one of the knights who killed Beckett.
Richard Plantagenet, the Earl of Cornwall and son of Henry 111, ensured we are entitled to a fair twice a year and a market every Saturday. He also built a palace in Bradninch, hence 'Palace Lawns' and 'Park' farm. Richard also built the castle at Tintagel in Cornwall that you can see today.
