Welcome to The Crown Estate
Exe Estuary Trail complete
26 November 2013
The final section of the Exe Estuary Trail has officially opened. Culminating in a 120m-span bridge over the River Clyst, the crossing allows cyclists and walkers to travel between Exeter and Exmouth. The path is part of the National Cycle Network Route 2 and has been developed by Devon County Council.
We helped enable the construction of the bridge by granting the necessary rights across the riverbed, that forms part of The Crown Estate.

2,000 year old Roman villa found in Devizes

The remains of a 2,000 year old Roman villa appear to have been discovered near Devizes under part of Crown Estate land proposed for a housing development by Lay Wood between the Kennet Canal and Horton Road.
The exact nature and quality of the find are being assessed by a team of archaeologists. Should the housing development go ahead, there could be an exciting opportunity to unearth the Roman villa and study it fully, possibly involving local schools and the wider community.
