01/12/2019 | Dewerstone Circular Moderate walk

Walk overview

I try to do this walk every autumn – it’s stunning and full of variety and interest. Starting at Shaugh Bridge, we meet up with the old railway line (also Drake’s Trail) and walk along it and through Brunel’s tunnel. Then we leave the trail, cross the Meavy and follow it downstream through woodlands. The track carries on along the side of the wooded hill, now following the Plym upstream, and we climb steeply uphill to the top of Dewerstone Tor. We continue upstream along the upper slopes of the valley, past Wigford Cross and over the Plym at Cadover Bridge. The path back downstream goes through a mix of woodland and heath before dropping back down to Shaugh Bridge past the old settling pits from the china clay works, Meet either at Ashburton Peartree at 11 am to car share, or at Shaugh Bridge at around 11.45 am.
