The coastal path has some steep climbs. Total ascent is 450m during the day. This is a winter walk of 15km/10 miles so the weather can be challenging

There's been a settlement at the mouth of the River Teign since the Dark Ages.  The town of Teignmouth grew up in the 1700's as a fishing port and then as a fashionable resort during the Georgian period.

This is going to be a bracing Winter's walk up the Teign Estuary across the river to Shaldon on the opposite bank before heading across country to hit the coastal path south of Labrador Bay.

We'll then follow the coastal path back towards Teignmouth, making a detour through the Smugglers Tunnel to Ness Cove before hopefully catching the ferry from Shaldon back across the estuary into the centre of Teignmouth where we'll be able to warm up at one of the many quayside inns if you wish....

The route is fairly low level and not that exposed, so will be passable even in the middle of winter.
