One of the lengthiest Shaldon walks runs between Shaldon and Dartmoor’s Haytor. The Templar Way connects the picturesque village of Shaldon, near Teignmouth, to Dartmoor’s impressive Haytor. An eighteen mile walk, this is probably one to tackle in sections or over several journeys.
The walk follows the former export route on which granite from Dartmoor was transported. Parts of the original tramway are still visible along the walk, and it once carried granite over the moor to Teignmouth and Shaldon from where it was exported. Haytor is an impressive granite tor and a vantage point for spectacular views across the moor and Teign Estuary.
