TOPSHAM, Devon

Topsham is a unique town on the Exe estuary, Devon, just three miles from Exeter in England's West country. Loved by its locals, and savoured by those who visit. Topsham offers breathtaking river walks, independent shops, antiques and galleries, restaurants and pubs, or just a beautiful space to stop on your bike ride and watch the boats go by with a pint.

Come for a day, a week or a lifetime.

New Topsham ferry

"Shimmer", the new Topsham Ferry
As reported in various local papers - for instance, New ferry launched today - the new Topsham ferry (named Shimmer, apparently by schoolchildren) went into service on Wednesday 13th April. It runs on the same route as the old, from the Ferry Road slipway opposite the Passage House Inn to the canal bank near Topsham Lock. Upgraded to serve increased traffic with the opening of the Route 2 cycle route, it can carry six to eight bicycles and 12 passengers. It's highly stable and has side door access (no more precarious clambering); the ferryman, Mike Stevens, told me he was delighted with it.
