This amazing site is located on the southern side of the steep Teign Valley on the northern fringes of Dartmoor. Jointly owned by the Woodland Trust and the National Trust in the first venture of its kind between the two organisations, Fingle Woods is undergoing extensive restoration to repair the areas damaged by maturing conifer. Public access has already been improved with 45km of new footpaths which has opened up the area to provide a fantastic woodland landscape to explore.
