“Following the cycle and walking route”
Review of Drake's Leat

Drake's Leat
Ranked #5 of 10 things to do in Yelverton
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Everything, especially the Gem bridge, the wildlife, the birds, the peacefulness. Takes about an hour but pretty level walking. The sound of the river far below. A must for anyone visiting Tavistock, Yelverton or Horribridge.

I love this walk, you can follow it from the beginning of Burrator to the reservoir, then join it again half way round, following it onto Dartmoor. You will love the views.

A varied walk underfoot. We did the walk in heavy frost on a cold day. The views were marred by some low lying mist/fog, so will need to return to make the most of them!

There are several parts of the leat left which can be walked including a large section from Yelverton to Clearbrook and over Roborough Down and another higher up near to Burrator Reservoir. Both are lovely easy walks that can be done in a few hours with the minimum of fuss…. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon mooch.

A must see especially if your willing to walk the length of it over several days
