Templer Way

29 km / 18 miles

Named after the Templer family who constructed the Stover Canal and Tramway to bring granite quarried at Haytor on Dartmoor to the coast at Teignmouth, the Way provides interest for ecological reasons as well as for the locks and buildings. The terrain ranges from open moor to woodland and estuary foreshore. The Way connects to the South West Coast Path having the ferry between Shaldon and Teignmouth in common.
