Throwleigh Common, Devon


  • Located in Throwleigh, Devon, South West England, England
  • In our opinion, despite its huge views and ease of access, Throwleigh Common is an under-visited area of Dartmoor National Park. In the north of the Park, where high moorland meets rolling Devon countryside, the common takes its name from nearby Throwleigh village. We've positioned Throwleigh Common on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its location
  • There's a road running along the eastern section of the common. Follow this until you get to Shilstone Tor. You'll find a car park at the tor. This is clearly visible on the satellite imagery. From there, a wide grassy track heads out across Throwleigh Common
  • There are various places at which you can cross Blackaton Brook on your way to Cosdon (The Cemetery) Stone Row or the top of Cosdon Beacon and Hill
  • If you're exploring the Throwleigh Common area do not stray into Raybarrow Pool. This is one of the most dangerous places in Dartmoor National Park
