Bradpole & The Monarch’s Way Long Distance Footpath

Monarch’s Way at Jessopp Ave. looking toward Watton Hill

This national long distance footpath of some 615 miles passes through Bradpole Civil Parish and is trodden by many visitors to our Parish each year.

A visiting walking group pauses at the Lee Lane Memorial

The Way is based on the lengthy route taken by King Charles II during his escape after defeat by Cromwell in the final battle of the Civil Wars at Worcester in 1651, when for six weeks the 21-year-old was hotly pursued by Parliamentary troops.
