Arch Brook Templer Way is part of the historical route that was once used to carry granite from Dartmoor to Teignmouth where you can stop to enjoy a break to watch the river
I’d driven past this many times and this time I decided to stop and have a look around and read the sign. I hadn’t realise that this was actually part of a historical route once used to export granite from the Haytor quarries on Dartmoor down to the docks at Teignmouth around two hundred years ago. Now though this spot is just a nice little hideaway to chill relax and maybe watch some birds, boats and any walkers go by.
The full length of the historical route is 18 miles between Haytor on Dartmoor and Teignmouth on the south coast. The Way traces the route by which granite was exported from Dartmoor via the unique Haytor Granite Tramway and the Stover Canal.
