Lydford Gorge – spring approaches

We were at Lydford Gorge yesterday afternoon with various National Trust colleagues at meeting where we are beginning to look at improving the marketing of the property.

Some people had never been to the gorge before so we gave them a whistle stop ‘behind the scenes’ tour.

Part of the Gorge is open to the public for half term this week – you can get to the White Lady Waterfall and walk the top path but you can’t do the riverside walk or get to the Devil’s Cauldron (we are still removing dangerous trees and carry out rockface inspections)
