My favourite walk

I’m sure I’ve said this before but this walk from Cadover Bridge to Shaugh Bridge and back along both sides of the River Plym is my favourite. Its an easy walk of not much more than 4 miles, it has a fair bit of a climb from Shaugh Bridge (no matter which way you do…

Glorious walk from Cadover Bridge to Shaugh Bridge and back

I’ve said before this is my favourite walk, anywhere. On days like this it becomes a very special place to be. The sky was blue (at last) and the chance was taken to burn off some of that Christmas pud, although the amount of cake we packed probably balanced out what was burned off!! This…

Cadover Bridge to Shaugh Bridge and back

This walk follows the clay pipe route out through the North Wood heading for Shaugh Bridge before crossing the Plym and heading up the track to the top above The Dewerstone. The return is back across Wigford Down with…
