The Culm is one of the most accessible rivers in Devon, with public footpaths along many sections that allow you to explore this intricate, braided, looping watercourse as it winds its way towards its confluence with the Exe and then to the sea. Below you can find some suggestions for circular walks and we’ll be adding to this page with more ideas as the project progresses.

We’re also keen to hear from landowners who might want to help us create new circular routes and make the Culm even more accessible.

Hemyock and Culm Valley

A gentle 4.5km (3 mile) walk crossing several braids of the river Culm.

The Killerton Two Chapels Walk

Taking in both of Killerton’s chapels, historic parkland, the River Culm, open farmland and ancient woodland, this walk is great way to explore the wider Killerton estate.

Further details available here.
