What better Braunton walk than one which takes in the village’s most significant historical area? Braunton Great Field walk is seven miles long and manages to include the Braunton Great Field, the Marsh and Braunton Burrows.
The Great Field is found beside the marsh of Braunton Burrows, and is one of just two remaining medieval open strip field systems in the whole of the UK. The field is still farmed today and is a famous archaeological site. The walk is relatively easy and covers flat land, but there are five stiles to climb along the way. The Braunton Great Field walk starts at the Museum and Tourist Information Centre, Braunton.
