Looking along the former railway, now a cycle and walking trail, towards Plym Bridge. The woodland is in National Trust ownership.
South Devon and Tavistock Railway (Ex)

The South Devon and Tavistock Railway linked Plymouth with Tavistock in Devon; it opened in 1859. It was extended by the Launceston and South Devon Railway to Launceston, in Cornwall in 1865.
For a period it carried the standard gauge (then referred to as narrow gauge) trains of the London and South Western Railway between Lydford and Plymouth: a third rail, making mixed gauge was provided.
The line closed in 1962. A short section has since been reopened as a preserved line by the Plym Valley Railway.
National Cycle Network Route 27 follows much of the course of the railway as does, The West Devon Way
