Railway Sleeper Slipway
'Sir Alex Walk'
at Topsham proceed to the River Exe, turn right, and walk up river towards
Exeter. You will pass the recreation ground and find 'Sir Alec's Walk',
a pedestrian pathway. Follow this path in a Northerly direction towards
the M5 Motorway Bridge (which crosses the River). As the Recreation
Ground narrows towards its Northern end, three wooden slipways become
visible. One is made from railway sleepers. In the top plank is a metal
ring. Attached to this metal ring is a chain which runs under the slipway.
Pulling on this chain will reveal a watertight box which contains the
River Exe stamp. Please replace everything as found.
