A wooded valley opening up to the moors of Dartmoor with a rich and varied industrious past

The Plym Valley consists of varied habitats from riverside meadows, ancient woodland and the wilderness of Dartmoor. Car parks at Plymbridge, Cadover Bridge and Shaugh Prior provide good starting points to explore the area on foot or bike.


A variety of walks are available to download, or just come and stroll around the woods - there are lots of paths to follow.
