WALKERS are being encouraged to sample the delights of Sidbury through the launch of a new tree trail leaflet masterminded by Sidmouth Arboretum.

It comes off the back of a successful incarnation for the town and has been devised by village resident and tree enthusiast Rob Bolton.

The Sidbury leaflet offers two circular walks around the beautiful valley.

They take in the village centre, including Millennium Pond, and encourage walkers onto the East Devon Way.

Members of Sidmouth Arboretum expressed their gratitude to Sir John Cave as landowner of much of the valley.

Sir John has enabled the creation of the longer circular route, by establishing a permissive path and, with the support of the county council and parish paths partnership, the eroded track has been restored.

New signs indicate the route - which gives excellent views across the valley.

Generously supported by the Sid Vale Association’s Keith Owen Fund, the leaflets are distributed free of charge and are available from local outlets.
