Manaton Old Road, Manaton, Dartmoor National Park

A road climbs from Bovey Tracey and the National Trust's Parke Estate to Trendlebere Down. From there, it continues to Becky Falls Woodland Park, Water/Freeland and Manaton. At the bottom of Trendlebere Down there's a byway open to all traffic that runs through Houndtor Wood to Water/Freeland. This is Manaton Old Road.

Walkers, mountain bikers, horse riders and 4x4s (eg Landrover clubs) frequent the byway.

In Houndtor Wood, you cross Becka Brook on Houndtor Wood Bridge.
