Join us for a fabulous six mile walk around some beautiful parts of West Dartmoor.
We will meet at 10.30am at Pork Hill car park (large and free, on the B3357 Princetown/Tavistock road, at the top of the hill, just before you leave the moor and descend into Tavistock)
The nearest Post Code that I can find is for The Dartmoor Inn, at Merrivale (we pass near it on the walk) PL20 6ST. This is on the Princetown side of the Car Park, so if you are travelling West, KEEP GOING!
We’ll be walking 10km, which will probably take us 3 hours, allowing for a couple of hills. The route is mainly on beaten tracks, but occasionally ‘off piste’, so please wear proper walking boots.
We will be on Dartmoor, in October, and the changable weather that it brings, so please bring a waterproof coat and trousers.
We will leave the carpark and go South East to Windy Post cross, which makes a rather nice photo in the right weather.
From there we’ll visit Pew Tor and the famous (or infamous) Vixen Tor, sometimes called ‘The Forbidden Tor’!
We’ll then pass by Merrivale Quarry on our way up to Great Staple Tor and Roos Tor, turning back for the car park at the Cairns that are further along that ridge.
Heading back to the car park, we’ll go past some ancient settlements and under Cox Tor. If time, weather and energy permit, we could make a detour and go to the top of Cox Tor.
For those that were on the Postbridge walk in August, you’ll be relieved to know that there are no river crossings on this walk!
Hopefully, Covid restrictions permitting, we will be able to get some refreshments after the walk at The Dartmoor Inn, at Merrivale.
Please do wear suitable attire for walking on Dartmoor, ie walking boots and suitable clothing as the weather is very changeable, so please be prepared for possible rain or hot weather. Please also bring a packed lunch and plenty of water.
We will be following the government guidelines in terms of social distancing.
