Deave Lane

Deave Lane is a very old cart track between Throwleigh village and Wonson on the edge of Dartmoor.

Over time, the carefully laid granite stones which form the base have been covered by natural debris. When there has been wet weather over a sustained period, the lane can become very muddy in places despite the drainage work that has done in the past to create ‘cut-offs’.

The ancient granite walls which still exist for most of the kilometre length of the lane can become overgrown with hazel, holly and ivy.

On Friday January 15th 2016, a group of volunteers from the Sticklepath and Okehampton conservation group, together with helpers from the village came together to improve the condition of the lane under the direction of Ian Brooker, the Ranger for this part of the National Park.
