After Exmouth was severely flooded in 1960, various flood defences were put in place to defend from the sea, the estuary and the brook.

A sunny afternoon out with Styru and The Queen...

We entered just a few metres from the outfall to the sea...

and headed inland up a very large concrete channel...

Had a chat with a local, who reminds me a lot of Bob Fleming...

There's some surprisingly big structures for what appears to be a small amount of water...

At this point there's public access and it's maintained by the council, it seems...

But what's this ahead... a little bridge? Someone walking across with a pint? A little pub sign seemingly placed for people wading up the brook?

Bonus ! Freezing cold pint of cider...

Good one!
Nice part of the country is Exmouth.
Looks like a good chilled out stroll.
That bloke really is a dead ringer for Bob Fleming, it's been a while since I heard some of his folking folk singles :)
