Walk Number 1 – No.1 Footpath. Pathfield, Daccombe
Distance: About 2 kilometres (1.2 miles)
Time: About 45 minutes (circular route)
Start the walk from the Linny public house in Coffinswell and walk down the lane opposite the
Linny car park. Look to your left, after 50 metres, and between two high beech hedges you will
see the 12th century church and Devon manor house (formerly a court house) next to it, which
was a farm house until fairly recently. Continue down the lane which bends to the left and goes
behind the church field and on down a narrow winding lane to the valley of the Aller Brook.
At Aller Brook turn left through a “kissing gate” onto No.1 Footpath. This path follows the
course of Aller Brook to an open area of coppiced trees with a “waterfall” and bench on which
you can rest. Kingfishers have been sighted here.
Continue along the path until you come to another “kissing gate” where you exit the footpath to
the left. Take care, as the footpath emerges onto a blind bend in the lane.
Walk up the lane. Just before the road starts to rise quite steeply, there is a lane on your left
which is lined with wild garlic in springtime. Do not follow this lane though, as you will simply
retrace earlier steps. Continue along the road, which rises fairly steeply for about 250
metres. You will then see the Coffinswell village sign and, within 100 metres or so, you are
back at the Linny public house.
