2. The Alphin Brook Walk

The Alphin Brook Walk (about three miles) - follows the valley of the Alphin Brook. The upper section of the brook flows through rich agricultural land. This is separated from the city by a ridge of hills. As it reaches the Exe valley the brook is tamed in a modern channel to prevent it flooding the old village of Alphington. The channel also protects its modern neighbour the industrial estate of Marsh Barton. Discover views and locations that are all part of Exeter but which often seem miles from a city.
