Galmpton to Greenway walk via Mill Lane

The walk to Greenway from Galmpton via Mill Lane takes in great views over the River Dart, and even goes along a beach foreshore. When the tide is in you may need to take off your socks and shoes to wade through the river for a short while, but when the tide is out it's a more straightforward walk.
