Long Walk To Brixham

What a glorious day for a walk!
Dark angry skies were now replaced by a sunny winters day.
Our walk started from Paignton and we would continue onto Brixham which was roughly 10 mile away, up and down the Jurassic Coastal Path, which was rugged, muddy and unpredictable.

The Beaches at this time of year are a doggy heaven, stretching over excited paws that have been restricted during the summer months.

The Coastal rail path, that goes to Brixham and in bright sunshine the walk was pleasant.

Many of the bridges are victorian, all built by hand and not machines.

The gateway into Brixham, which was heavily fortified and the old barracks and artillery can be seen in Brixham`s museum.

A full sized replica of The Golden Hind is available for all to visit aswell as the chance to read about the Spanish Armada and Sir Francis Drake.

Then, when you`ve exhausted yourself with the walk here and visiting there (there is plenty to see) why not treat yourself to good old fashioned fish and chips! I highly recommend them!!
I don`t think Sir Francis Drake would argue with you!
Our journey finished here and we caught the bus back to Paignton, which runs very regularly and easy to find.
