South brent

A This most pleasant & peaceful walk starts along the babbling boulder filled river Avon.
Take care from the car park not to cross the railway bridge but to use footpath (left at T junction) which descends and runs under another railway bridge.

B At Aish turn left past a telephone booth .The lanes changes into a track and steadily climbs towards Brent Moor.

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.

E Return via the hamlet of Didworthy

All paths are generally well maintained.
