Get on your bike!
Friday the 20th December saw an early present for cycle enthusiasts, the final 4km section of the Wray Valley Trail between Lustleigh and Wray Barton was finally completed and opened.
The 11km Wray Valley Trail is a multi-use off road path linking Bovey Tracey, Lustleigh and Moretonhampstead to give easier access to the beauty of the Wray Valley. The route largely follows the disused railway line between Newton Abbot and Moretonhampstead which was closed in 1964 after almost 100 years of service.
The construction of the Trail required the installation of two 25 metre long steel bridges to replace old railway bridges crossing the main road.
Don’t worry, if you’re not a cyclist, this community path is for walkers and equestrians as well. Why not take a stroll along the Trail whilst holidaying at Three Pound Cottage, our self-catering cottage is perfectly placed to explore the beautiful Wray Valley.
