A new booklet detailing walks in and around the Riviera Line from Exeter to Paignton was launched at Dawlish Station this week.

The free booklet has been produced by the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership and brings together a selection of six self-guided walks, all starting from and ending at Riviera Line railway stations.   Included are walks from Starcross, Dawlish Warren, Dawlish and Teignmouth stations.  

It is part of the promotional campaign being run for the line by the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership as part of the EU Interreg “Citizens’ Rail” project. 

Celia Minoughan, the Partnership’s Riviera Line Project Officer said “The booklet is a great companion for people who like exploring South Devon and there are some fabulous walks to explore along the Riviera Line.  This selection is just a taster of what is out there, more walks can be found on our website www.therivieraline.com “

At Dawlish Station this week Celia was joined by walkers from Dawlish Walk This Way at the start of their weekly Wednesday walk. Nigel Rhys, a walk leader from Walk This Way, said: “We welcome the Walks from the Riviera Line booklet. Every week we lead up to 40 people on walks from Dawlish Station, including the Dawlish Town Trail featured in the booklet. A few of our group regularly come from Starcross by train to join us at Dawlish Station.”

30,000 copies of the “Walks from the Riviera Line” booklet have been printed and can be found at stations throughout the First Great Western network as well as local tourist information centres. Copies can also be obtained by emailing railpart@plymouth.ac.uk

Local partners in “Citizens’ Rail” – which is 50% funded by the EU’s Interreg IVB programme – include Devon County Council, Torbay Council, First Great Western, Plymouth University and the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership. 

More information about ‘Walks from the Riviera Line’ and the Citizens’ Rail project, including how to get involved, can be obtained from Celia Minoughan at the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership on 01752 584777, at celia@citizensrail.org or by visiting www.citizensrail.org

Thanks for adding the clickable link and highlighting the NNR walk in this thread about walks. smiley

Why the accusation of 'hijacking', I don't know. But then again!!!

Lynne is correct, if it links with any other issue then it is fair comment to point out the connnection, as one impacts on the other.  Thank you Lynne for the information.

I am glad that FGW took up my suggestion of preparing walks from the Exeter-Paignton stations. There has for some time been a very good booklet for walks from the Avocet LIne stations and that provided a model for this new booklet.  The walk from Lympstone is a favourite if timed to end with a pub lunch.
