through ancient woodland and follows
the sides of streams. The rich variety
of underlying geology through out the
route supports a wealth of plant life
with a corresponding variety of animal
life that is dependent upon it.

The Way also gives an insight to East
Devon’s ancient past, passing by pre-
historic hill forts, bronze age burial
mounds, Saxon villages and Medieval
manors.
