The Templar Way: Part 1 Walk


This whole walk, IDs 228 and 484, is a non-circular walk of about 17 miles which can be walked either downhill from Haytor on Dartmoor to Teignmouth on the South Devon Coast, or uphill in the opposite direction, finishing at Haytor. 

The route follows as closely as possible the line of the Haytor Granite Tramway, the Stover Canal and the Teign Estuary. It covers a whole range of terrain from open moorland through quiet woodland, field tracks and country lanes to estuary foreshore. It is very well-marked throughout the entire distance by the Templar Way logo apart from the first section on Haytor Down. However, on this section it is possible to follow the line of the tramway. 

The logo consists of a tramway wheel and the tiller and rudder of a barge, representing both the tramway and the canal. There is also a series of information boards along the route explaining the history of the railway and canal in some detail.
