This pushchair friendly walk takes you alongside the River Dart and Bidwell Brook to the craft centre at Dartington. All paths are suitable for normal pushchairs.

The start is the car park at Totnes Railway Station (grid ref. SX801609). Other parking options are available in the town centre including the cheaper car park at the recreation ground (grid ref. SX803608). Assuming a start from the station, walk through the car park to the opposite end from the main road. You will soon locate the footpath to Dartington. Follow the path to the banks of the River Dart and turn left. The path continues with the river on your right and leads round to a large weir.

Continue along the riverside path to reach a lane. Turn right along the lane, cross Bidwell Brook and the go left on assigned path through woodland. This path leads you parallel to the brook to reach a preserved watermill. Continue along the path to reach the craft centre with shops and cafes (grid ref. SX787622).

The return route is a reverse of the outward walk.
