Description

A different alternative to Plyivy 1,2,3. which go over Laira Bridge and to the north of Plymstock, This route utilizes the Mountbatten Ferry as does the PlyPlym route. However the route then goes south of Plymstock at first along the coast path then picking up the Erme Plym Trail to Brixton. It is longer than the other routes. But quite delightful. There is a long road section between Yelmbridge and Burraton. And some sections on footpaths were muddy at the time I walked it in Mid November after days of quite heavy rain. It is a safe route, hilly in places. It does have some serious steps at Mountbatten point

Surveys

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Lovely route involving a ferry from Plymouth Barbican to Mount Batten. Variety of scenery including coast, farmland, river side paths, quiet lanes and pretty villages, to the town of Ivybridge.

Foot paths, bridleways and very quiet lanes. No main road crossings and very good transport links from the rest of Devon.

I enjoyed this route, albeit in wet and muddy conditions after days of heavy rain. The route is mostly on footpaths and quite country lanes. There is also substantial road walking but these are either very quiet lanes or they have a pavement on at least one side. There are many steps at Mountbatten Point, There is a ferry crossing involved from the Quay at Plymouth to Mountbatten point. The cost (November2023) was £2.50 and runs every 30 minutes from either end. There are pubs at Brixton and at Yealmpton where there is also a cafe.
