West Devon Way

The West Devon Way explores the rugged and spectacular countryside on the western fringe of the Dartmoor National Park along the 18 miles between Okehampton, where it links with the Tarka Trail, and Tavistock. From there it continues a further 17 miles mainly in river valleys to Plymouth where it connects with the Erme-Plym Trail.

National Cycle Network Route 27

National Cycle Network Route 27 is a 99 miles long route between Ilfracombe and Plymouth, of which 71 miles are traffic-free. The route combines the beaches and estuaries of North Devon with the lush green valleys of the Torridge, the Tavy, the Walkham and other evocative West Country rivers. The route also skirts round the western flank of Dartmoor offering superb views of Cornwall and the surrounding area. There is also many local links and spurs to explore. Largely tracing the course of former railway lines, the route takes you through tunnels and across the breathtaking viaducts and bridges bequeathed by Victorian railway engineers.

Bickleigh Viaduct

Built of timber in 1859 by IK Brunel. Rebuilt in stone in 1893. The viaduct is 501 feet long.
