3. Churchills Local Nature Reserve


Churchills is a Local Nature Reserve with spectacular views over Newton Abbot.

Nestled next to Highweek Church on the northern edge of Newton Abbot, there are three small fields with benches from which you can enjoy the fine views out over the town and the Teign Estuary or up towards Dartmoor. The grassland of the two very steep fields has a great diversity of wildflowers and butterflies - much of the grass is left long through the summer so that people can enjoy the sight and the wildlife can thrive.
