The new Devil’s Leap Bridge nestled in the heart of Canonteign Falls estate is now open. The modern bridge is brilliantly juxtaposed with the ancient fern landscape. More art than bridge, the installation has taken 2  years to reach fruition with huge logistical hurdles to overcome. Kate Baylis says “I wanted a magical structure for this incredibly special location, to create abridge with a charming twist that children and adults will want to return to again and again”.



Twin sisters Bethany and Alice Antliff , graduates from South Devon and Plymouth College of Arts have successfully won the accolade of Canonteign Falls Resident  Summer Artist’s for 2018.   After the success of the collaboration last summer with South Devon Plymouth College of Art,  Canonteign Falls again asked graduates to apply for the position and with the calibre of the artist so high Bethany and Alice, twin sisters, were both awarded a summer residency.  The artist's will source inspiration for a piece of work from the beautiful landscape and biodiverstiy within and around Canonteign Falls, their work will then be exhibited at the end of the Summer and bought as a commission to be on display.


This season, ,we want to celebrate everythig that's great about the people and places nearby.
