View from Shaugh Bridge, Devon

Rocky crags, woodland and water

From the meeting of the Rivers Plym and Meavy, up to the open moorland at Wigford Down, it's a rich and varied place to walk. 

Going through the woods you'll see the highest outcrop of granite in the south west, known as the Dewerstone along with historic remains. The area around Shaugh Bridge is nationally important for plants and wildlife and we work to protect them by conserving and improving their habitats. Birds to look out for include pied flycatchers and wood warblers - you might even spot the turquoise flash of a kingfisher down by the river.

Take time to explore, you might like to try the short waymarked route, or the more challenging Bricks, boulders and bronze walk.
