Route Changes

Royal William Yard, Plymouth - new route

19th June 2013

A crucial gap ( Map Ref: SX 460 534) in the South West Coast Path National Trail linking Devil’s Point Park to the Royal William Yard in Plymouth has been filled and the new route is officially open. 

A new staircase enables  for the first time,  Coast Path walkers to get through the defensive wall at Devil’s Point into the Yard, creating a connection all the way around the Stonehouse peninsula.

This means that walkers can now explore the fantastic historical buildings of the Royal William Yard, and enjoy the stunning views from Devil's Point Park. It's a bit further to walk, but I'm sure you'll find it more than worthwhile. 

See the map below details of the new route, whilst the photo of the Stonehouse peninsula gives you a flavour of the new section.
