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.

The Laira :: SX5055

Laira was originally the name given to that part of the estuary of the River Plym from the Cattewater up to Marsh Mills in Plymouth. The name may derive from a Brythonic word corresponding to the Welsh llaeru, meaning 'to ebb'.
