A walk along the South West Coast Path from Teignmouth, Devon
Seeing is believing! Travelling by train between Exeter and Newton Abbot is one of the most spectacular railway rides in Britain.
The line threads along the coast, follows estuaries and tunnels, and balances between steep red cliffs and the deep blue sea.
Since it was built in the 1840s the line has been closed many times by cliff collapses and seawall breaches. Trains are affected by gale force winds and flooded tracks. So why is it kept open?
This walk explores why by following the railway between Teignmouth and Dawlish Warren. Along the way are stunning views, some fascinating stories and hidden secrets to discover as you are walking.
In extreme weather the railway is subject to closures and the Coast Path can be closed or diverted. For updates and information see the South West Coast Path website.
