Erme Plains, Devon


  • Located in Harford, Devon, South West England, England
  • Open a copy of the Ordnance Survey Explorer OL28 'Dartmoor' map. Flip it over onto the side that covers the southern section of Dartmoor National Park. Put your finger on Ivybridge and then follow the River Erme upstream to the high plateau. You'll pass through Piles Valley and arrive in an area packed with historical and natural features. Tinner's huts and prehistoric settlements sit side by side. Stone rows lead to the ancient Erme Pound. In the distance, to the north, is the dome of Green Hill and the miniature mountain of Red Lake China Clay Works. Whilst it's not the easiest of places to get to, Erme Plains clearly has a fascinating past. It's also immensely beautiful
  • Erme Plains is one of a number of areas of exposed, flat ground in this part of the National Park. See also Beacon Plain
