Churchinford, Upottery and Culm Valley


A moderate 17.5-mile ride with some challenging uphill and downhill sections on main route, or an optional shorter route of 12 miles.

Look out for:

  • Dunkeswell Abbey: take a short detour to visit the ruins of the Abbey, founded in 1201 as a Cistercian Monastery.
  • Churchinford: note the seven way crossroads!
  • Otterhead Lakes: a short detour will take you to this former Victorian estate. Now a local nature reserve with a mile of lakes, woodland, grassland and some surviving heritage features.
  • Upottery Airfield: One of three local airbases used by the Canadian and US air forces in the second world war.
