You can walk upstream from Buckland Bridge to the confluence of the West and East Webburn Rivers. To go there and back will take about two hours. The 37 hectares of the nature reserve extend for one mile along the west bank of the River Webburn. Blackadon Tor, the highest point of the reserve, is surrounded by open grassland containing some dense areas of gorse and bracken, while the steep slopes which drop down to the river are thickly wooded.

How to get here


Take the Dart Valley Country Park exit off the A38. Follow the signs to the Country Park and then continue past the Park and onwards, via Holne Bridge to New Bridge. Follow the road over the bridge and round to the right past the New Bridge car park. Take the next right, where the road steeply ascends. The road forks after approximately 1km (just before Buckland Bridge). Either road will take you to the nature reserve.

For the closest entrance, park by the buildings on the left just before the fork and, on foot, follow the right hand road towards Buckland Bridge for about 200m. The entrance to the nature reserve is on the left, just before a gate closed across the road at Buckland Bridge.

For the second entrance to the reserve take the left hand fork and travel through Lower Town and towards Leusdon for just over 1km. Park in the lay-by on the right hand side of the road just past Leusdon Church before you reach the village itself. Retrace your steps back down the road for about 300m and then take the lane on the left. Access to the reserve is at the end of this lane.
