A very picturesque walk around Waterhead Creek in Kingswear south Devon. Walk around the creek and through the woods above the creek. Look out for wildlife on the creek, boats on moorings and of course the stunning views across the creek to the river Dart. A short strole which can be extended through Long Wood. This extended walk takes the total distance up to just 3 miles....well worth it!

Start the walk at the banjo in Kingswear (by the bus stop). It's the local name for the turning area opposite the shop where the buses stop. Cross over the steam railway bridge designed and built by Brunel for the Great Western Railway. Follow the marked footpath alongside the railway line then turn right through a small gate....(remember to close the gate). Walk along the narrow road beside the the creek. Take at look back at the banjo to see that it is supported by tall concrete pillars. It was built in 1961 to create extra space for vehicles to turn. take in the beauty of the creek and the variety of birds. Carry on until you see a path down via wooden steps to the green area at the head of the creek. This green area is Jubilee Park. Plenty of benches to sit and admire the view. Now follow the path along the soutern edge of the creek back towards Darthaven Marina and the bridge back up to the banjo.
