Pi Singles Guided Nature Walk on Exmoor

Pi Singles Guided Walk on Exmoor –

Exmoor is an incredible place to walk. We have a guided walk by Clive Taylor to take us on a circular walk from Tantivy tea rooms Dulverton then car share to Tarr Steps car park, down to Withypool along the River Barle and then return for lunch at The Royal Oak, Withypool . It maybe rough underfoot in places, so please wear stout walking shoes or walking boots. If it has been raining recently, it will probably be muddy. Even if the weather forecast is for good weather, please bring a lightweight waterproof coat – moorland weather can change very quickly. This takes 3-4 hours depending on the ability of the walkers.

Clive will be talking about birds and nature. He is involved in the National Park.

Approx 5 miles.

The Clapper Bridge

Tarr Steps is a 17 span clapper bridge (Tarr Steps is an example of a ‘clapper’ bridge (the term being derived from the Latin ‘claperius’, meaning ‘pile of stones’) and is constructed entirely from large stone slabs and boulders.), the longest of its kind in Britain. It was first mentioned in Tudor times but may be much older. The river has silted up over the last century and often now comes over the stones in times of flood. The bridge has had to be repaired several times as stones of up to two tonnes have been washed up to 50 metres downstream.

The name ‘Tarr’ is thought to be derived from the Celtic word ‘tochar’, meaning ’causeway’.

It’s only because the local sedimentary rocks form such suitable slabs that it was built at all. At 59yds (54m), Tarr Steps is by far the longest of the 40 or so clapper bridges left in Britain.
