To the Dewerstone and back

These were taken last Wednesday. It was a reasonable day, weather wise.  Had a couple (three really , but don't tell) of hours spare and took myself of for a walk.  The good lady was busy earning a crust and unfortunatly could not join me.

The path from Cadover to Shaugh Bridge and on up through Dererstone is managed by the National Trust and follows the old clay pipe line.

The Dewerstone is a popular climbing spot in this neck of the woods.


edit: replaced four distorted photos.

On leaving the car park at Cadover, go through the gate and follow the path.

a short detor the take pictures of the River Plym. (used an ND4 filter on this).

and back onto the path through North wood,

with it's weird and wonderful shapes. At first this reminded me of a giant slugs head and antenna. (maybe it was the coffee i had drunk before setting our)

and onto West Down.

We move from woodland to open moor

with views across the Dewerstone rocks and it's climbers

we keep following the old pipe work which moved wet clay from the pits at Cadover/Lee moor to Shaugh and onto Plympton.

One of the old settling tanks.

before going down to Shaugh Bridge and Derstone woods.

Across the river. This bridge was rebuilt in 2010.

What goes down must go up at some point.......

and up......

until, the view!. This shows the path I went along earlier.

On top, there are some carvings on the granite rocks. I have no idea by who or why. :-(

More carvings.

After leaving the top and walking across the common we come to Cadover cross. The river Plym and Trolwsworthy Tor in the background.

and finally, back to square one.
the bridge at Cadover.

Lovely walk, and not another person to be seen (apart from the climbers) We used to have relatives living in Plympton many years ago. I love the old trees such wierd and wonderfull shapes. Thanks for sharing your walk with us.

Great informative blog. Are you sure it "was only coffee that you had before setting off"?.

Great scenery. It's nice to have something like that closeby - got the peak district outside my front door now (just moved house)

Only 3 years and 7 months before I retire...

Great blog, that looks like my sort of walk. I enjoyed looking at this, some lovely pictures with a definite hint of spring in the air.

photography- cheaper than owning a dog and you get just as much exercise!

Great shots and looks like a great place for a walk. I especially like the river view with slightly blurred water. Very beautiful.
