The Waymarked Link Routes from

Beer & Branscombe to the East Devon Way

Beer starts on the Jubilee at Beer

and joins the East Devon Way just north of Colyton on the River Coly

Branscombe starts at the Sea Shanty, Branscombe Beach

and joins the East Devon Way at Farway

The East Devon way is a long distance (65km) inland walking route from Exmouth to Lyme Regis
