Colaton Raleigh common

Not strictly the South West Coast Path but part of Woodbury Common, which is crossed by the East Devon Way from Exmouth to Lyme Regis. Sir Walter Raleigh was born nearby at Hayes Barton in 1552, and is believed to have been baptised at Colaton Raleigh church.
There are numerous danger areas marked on the map because the commons are used by the Royal Marines as a cross-country course and for combat and hand-grenade training. This walk circles the restricted areas so should be accessible at all times.
Several small streams rise in the area and even in dry weather the ground can be a little boggy underfoot, especially in areas heavily shaded by trees.

Distance
9.4km in 2hr 9min.
