The basics

Please make your own way to the hydro turbine. You can either park at Fingle Bridge and walk the 1 mile upstream to the building or park at Castle Drogo and walk down to it.
What to bring and wear
Please wear clothing suitable for the weather.
Accessibility
Due to the rough ground (and the very steep climb back up to Castle Drogo if you park here) you do need to be physically fit to walk to the hydro turbine.
