Shipley Bridge, Devon


  • Located in South Brent, Devon, South West England, England
  • Dartmoor has a number of 'gateway towns' offering access to the National Park. It also has a number of major car parking areas offering access to the high moors. The car parking areas at Belstone and Meldon, for example, offer access to Dartmoor's north plateau. Shipley Bridge is one of the major car parking areas providing access to Dartmoor's south plateau. It's one of the starting points to which we've been repeatedly drawn over the years as we've photographed and researched the southern section of the National Park. We've positioned Shipley Bridge on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its location. As one would expect, it's also marked on the Ordnance Survey Explorer OL28 'Dartmoor' map and the Harvey British Mountain Map 'Dartmoor' map
  • There are a high number of attractions in the local area. We'd recommend visiting Avon Dam Reservoir, Red Lake China Clay Works, Eastern White Barrow, Three Barrows and Corringdon Ball Long Barrow
  • Other major car parking areas in this part of the Park include the two by Venford Reservoir, the popular New Bridge and New Bridge Car Park and the area by Dartmeet Bridges
