November 27th – Loddiswell and the River Avon

On a somewhat cool autumn morning, Jenni & Tony led 21 walkers from the Avon Mill Garden Centre on a delightful walk alongside the River Avon returning via the track of the dismantled railway line. The dull and overcast skies did not prevent us from enjoying the bright autumnal colours.

Loddiswell Station, on the now dismantled South Brent to Kingsbridge line,  closed in 1963 after 70 years of operation. There is an excellent collection of photos together with a full history at this website

We last did this walk in 2008. You can watch the video of that walk below. Look out for Tim waving from the bridge and compare it with today’s photo at the same spot.
