South Devon & Dartmoor Rivers, Lakes and Beaches - Text Only Version - a swim, walk & history guide by Simon Tozer

NB: this guide will be available for postage from Friday 24th November.

This book is a combination of my South Dartmoor Rivers and Lakes Guide and the South Devon Beaches Guide. However please note that this book is completely in BLACK AND WHITE AND CONTAINS NO PHOTOS!

This text only version guide is for those people who just want the information, rather than the nice photos.

This is my personal guide to twenty one river, lake and beach locations on and around Southern Dartmoor and South Devon. This guides gives you more information on the area, the history, the legends, the swims, the walks and even a poem for each.

  • Swim – Where are the best places to swim? What is the water like? How busy does it get? Is the water likely to be polluted?
  • Walk – how do I get there? Is there a good walk I can enjoy and what are the details?
  • History – Read about the local history & the legends. From Vikings to Piskies to Tin & Clay mining, Devil’s Footprints on the beaches, a 14th Century monk who became Britain’s first serial killer, 18th Century smugglers and brigands and the arrival of the railways.
