CThis is an ideal place for a picnic offering stunning views of the South Hams stretching towards the coast.
You may wish to explore the moors further up although the paths are not that clear.

DNear Shipley Bridge It passes the ruins of a naptha distillery, where during the 19th century oil was distilled from peat.
