Walk with the Rector

Are you an avid walker? Do you live somewhere between Exeter (Devon) and Exeter (Oxford)? Can you spare some time for the College? If you answered yes, then we have a challenge for you!

To kick start our 700th Anniversary, the Rector is walking from Exeter to Exeter in late July. Following in the footsteps of Rector Prideaux from the 16th century, and generations of Devonian students, she will be walking this exceptional journey over two weeks.

We need some help in checking her route by those with local knowledge. If you would be willing to walk a section, recommend places to stay, or suggest route alterations, please do get in touch with Katrina Hancock.

The Rector’s proposed route and schedule is outlined below and will continue to be updated over the coming months. The rector will be blogging or tweeting as she goes!

If you would like to join her in the summer for a leg or a day’s walk she would love your company. She will be raising money to fund an bursary for students wishing to take up an unpaid internship that focuses on the environment. To that end, all who join her will be asked to contribute either to this bursary or this year’s Annual Fund. More details to follow but do log your interest with Will Watt.

Floreat exon!
