The Barbastelle Bat Barbastalla barbastellus is a nationally rare bat with a distinctive "pug-like" appearance. Exmoor's Oak woodlands hold one of the few known maternity roosts in the UK. They prefer to hunt along wooded river valleys and areas of scrub. More on this species from The Wildlife Trusts.

Bridgetown is a hamlet alongside the River Exe on the A369, which includes an old mill, packhorse bridge and a cricket pitch with a thatched pavilion. A peaceful walk leads along the river towards Winsford. Parking is in a lay-by from which a bridge crosses to the cricket pitch. There is a pub and rock faces carved with the dates when the turnpike was cut along the valley in the 1820s.
