Plym Bridge Woods - National Trust

About us

A wooded valley of the River Plym, springtime sees the woodland floor covered with wild flowers including wood anemone, wild garlic, primroses and bluebells.
 
Several old quarries with interesting industrial archaeological remains now support an abundance of ferns, mosses and lichens. The site is home to many animals, including a herd of fallow deer, and a wide range of birds.
 
Kingfishers and dippers can be seen along the river, and lesser spotted woodpecker and tree pipit are found within the woods. Peregrine falcons breed on an old quarry face within the woodland.
 
The site supports many damselflies and butterflies, such as the speckled wood.
 
Facilities: Car Park, Visitor Centre, Walks,
 
Access: The former Tavistock Line railway, which runs through the site, is now a part of the Plym Valley trail (starting at Saltram House next to the Plym Estuary). This trail is part of the long-distance Devon Coast to Coast cycle route.
 
Hints and Tips: During the breeding season there is usually a viewing station with telescopes for visitors' use.
 
For more information including a recommended walk, please visit Plymbridge wood’s website.
