Walking from Follaton
There are paths from your home to Follaton House, the A381 Western Bypass, Totnes Railway Station and Totnes Town Centre. Paths are being created from Follaton Oak estate through to Jackman’s Lane and through to the Follaton Arboretum.
The Totnes Ramblers (see below) are creating a circular walking route around Totnes and this is likely to pass through Follaton Oak and through Follaton estate.
In 2015 a company called Croydecycle produced handy, detailed cycling and walking maps for the Totnes area. A copy of each is included in your pack. Further copies can be obtained from the Totnes bookshop and elsewhere
