Ted Hughes Poetry Trail

Ted Hughes was born in Yorkshire, in the north of England, but at age 30 moved to Devon county in the country’s southwest, where he remained for the rest of his life. His presence in the region, to say nothing of his position as Poet Laureate (1984 until his death in 1998), is honored with the Ted Hughes Poetry Trail in Stover Country Park, Newton Abbot, Devon.

Part of an extensive Heritage Trail Walking Route, the Hughes Poetry Trail opened in 2006 and features 16 granite and wood poetry posts, each displaying a poem, plus a short Children’s Poetry Trail with poems about animals, some of which are illustrated. Visitors are advised to allow about two hours to complete the trail, which follows a stream for a way and loosely encircles a lake.
