Dewerstone & Plym Valley

Walk Overview

Many people know the walk along the Plym from Cadover Bridge to Shaugh Bridge, which is the final stretch of this route. But we begin by walking first to the disused train track which is now the Drake’s Trail. We walk through one of Brunel’s railway tunnels, dark and dripping, then cross the Meavy and follow it southwards past Dewerstone Cottage and the old quarry works. We go through beautiful woodlands above the river (by now it’s the Plym) and climb up to Dewerstone Rock from where the views are tremendous. We walk across open moorland to Cadover Bridge, passing Wigford Cross. Then it’s another stretch of woodland riverside walking back to Shaugh Bridge, following the china clay pipeline all the way. A beautiful walk in the autumn when the woodland colours are at their best. Meet either at Shaugh Bridge or Ashburton (at 11 am) to carshare to start point.
