Orley Common is a wildlife site close to the village of Ipplepen.
The common is a fragile site of great value for its wildlife, geology and historical interest. Because it has fairly undisturbed ancient grassland and ancient woodland, it is very species rich, with country and national rarities. It is particularly important to local people for quiet recreation,and there are some excellent views fro the highest point.
There are many sloping tracks and paths that give access around the common. The paths are quite steep and uneven in places.
Free parking, there is a small car park but it has a height restriction of 2
Orley Common is half a mile west of Ipplepen on the road to Torbryan. It can be reached by car from the A381.
There is a local bus service to Ipplepen from Newton Abbot/Totnes
