A walk up the Plym Valley

Cadover Bridge on the Plym between Shaugh Prior and Yelverton is a very popular destination on a sunny day. I was there a week ago – the car parks were full and people were paddling in the river, cooking barbeques and generally enjoying the sunshine. Very, very few of these visitors however venture further up the Plym Valley. The photographs that follow shows what you are missing! I did a four hour walk from Cadover Bridge to Little Trowlesworthy Tor and then onto Hen Tor, down into the Shavercombe Brook valley and then back along the Plym to the car. I can thoroughly recommend it and it is on National Trust land all the way there and back!
