After completing the Salcombe to East Portlemouth walk earlier in the day I decided I would complete the last of my Devon “Use of Ferries” walks and certainly my shortest!
From Kingsbridge I drove around to Teignmouth and parked close to the beach. I remember when I first walked through here before and just jumped onto an available ferry for the very short distance across the mouth of the River Teign, today I did the same. I spoke to the ferry man and recognised him from 5 years ago. The return walk from Shaldon back to Teignmouth was simply to follow the road a short distance to the bridge over the River Teign and follow a footpath that kept close to the river and through the streets of Teignmouth back to the car. After only 30 minutes of walking the walk was complete.
Distance today = 2 miles
Total distance = 4,686 miles
