Franklin Totnes Trail


Overview

The Franklin Totnes Trail is a circular walk around Totnes which has come to life as part of a legacy bequest from a member of the Totnes Ramblers, Mr Edward Franklin.

It’s a 6¾ mile, waymarked, circular walk with several points of interest along the way, starting in the historical town of Totnes and walking via Totnes Riverside Station, Fishchowter’s Lane and Totnes Hydropower Scheme. It should take the average walker 3 to 4 hours to complete the walk, but if time is limited there are options to shorten the walk by ¾ mile, 2¾ miles or 4 miles. You can find a map and full details of the Franklin Trail by clicking here.

You can find out more about Totnes Ramblers on their blog here.

The general market takes place on Friday and Saturday throughout the year and is held on the Civic Square, just off High Street in the centre of the town. Here you can buy anything from vintage boxes to fresh fish from a fishmonger. Every fourth Friday of the month there is a new indoor market at the Civic Hall, Totnes with a collection of interesting and exciting stalls selling a variety of handmade products. Shelter from the elements and find delicious food to take away, arts & crafts, special gifts and much more. Open to visitors from 9 am – 4 pm. One of the best places to try the delicious delights of what Totnes and the surrounding area has to offer is at the Totnes Good Food Sunday Market.
