Clifford Crags

To the south of Clifford Bridge and Farm and above a track can be found a long line of about eight or nine overgrown, scruffy and difficult to view crags, in summer months almost disappearing within the undergrowth completely. It is, therefore, recommended that you visit during winter months when they can be appreciated to their fullest.

It is a shame since were it not for the dense vegetation, these crags would be an impressive feature along this stretch of the River Teign, as is the case with the range of crags further upstream at Seaman's Borough and Broadmoor Common, near Fingle Bridge.

The hillside here, which is on private land, is steep and precarious but the track that passes below gets you within touching distance with the southernmost pile, at a junction of tracks, being at the foot of the great hill and accessible.
