Exploring Shaugh Bridge
Discover ancient oak-wooded valleys on the south west corner of Dartmoor. Walk along the River Meavy or explore the upper Plym Valley with its dramatic Dewerstone Rock and industrial ruins.
Explore an historic landscape
This landscape of woodland and granite crags has been shaped by many hundreds of years of activity.
Spot the remains of a 19th century iron mine, quarry tramway and brick kiln as well as evidence of charcoal burning.
There are also enclosures, the stone ramparts of a prehistoric fort and hut circles spread across the open moorland.
Delve into a temperate rainforest
The area around Shaugh Bridge is nationally important for plants and wildlife. The ancient oak woodland is part of the UKs rare temperate rainforest habitat.
The high humidity and low temperature range create the perfect conditions for moisture-loving lichens, mosses and liverworts.
