The Cad, Devon

Historical Description

Cad, The, a stream of Devonshire, rising in the centre of Dartmoor Forest, and running 10 miles south-south-westward to the Plym at Shaugh village, 8½ miles NNE of Plymouth. It is properly the Plym, being longer than the headstream bearing that name. Its vale is a wild glen, replete with character, overhung by cliffs and rocky hills, and flanked in parts with torrents of fallen masses of granite.
