Lych Way, Devon


  • Located in Devon, South West England, England
  • The Lych Way, or Lichway as you can see in the accompanying photograph, is an ancient path running from the centre of Dartmoor to Lydford on the National Park's western border
  • Those living on Dartmoor were expected to attend Lydford St Petroc's Church for church services and burials. They would have used the Lych Way to walk there
  • It's a reasonably easy linear walk between Bellever Forest and Lydford. We've used the Harvey British Mountain Map 'Dartmoor' map to walk the Way. The track is clearly marked on that map. There are signs at various points of the walk to help, too
  • If you fancy a shorter walk, we'd recommend the stretch of Way between Bellever Forest and Longaford Tor. You'll see Powdermills and Wistman's Wood
