Shell Top, Devon


  • Located in Shaugh Prior, Devon, South West England, England
  • Yomp up the side of the south moors to Shell Top and you'll be rewarded with some big views. Most noticeable, in the foreground, are the China Clay Workings (South Dartmoor). Beyond those are Plymouth and Plymouth Sound. You'll see the South Devon coast and the East Cornwall coast around Rame Head. The Tamar Valley pushes north from Plymouth and Bodmin Moor rises far to the west. As you turn to look north, Dartmoor rolls in front of you. It's an intoxicating sight
  • Shell Top is on the edge of English Heritage's Upper Plym Valley
