Torrington Commons bluebell woods at Rice Point

Great Torrington
is bounded on three sides by common land which was given to the town in the 12th century.

These wonderful 365 acres of common land are freely accessible to all and provide the natural habitat of a rich variety of flora and fauna ranging from the challenging 9-hole heathland golf course in the north; ancient wood and wild flower meadow in the west; and dropping down to the beautiful River  Torridge Valley to the south of the town.

Twenty miles of footpaths across the Commons are described in a series of leaflets that are available from the town Tourist Information Centre
Car parks are available off the Bideford road to the west (the Old Bowling Green), and in Great Torrington itself.
