Wednesday, November 22, 2017 BELTOR CORNER-SHARP TOR-SHERWELL-CORNDON DOWN
We start by climbing up to Sharp Tor where the views over the Dart valley and beyond are spectacular. Then we descend gradually and cross over to Yar Tor, the Money Pit and a stone row. We follow the lane a short distance to the picturesque hamlet of Sherwell and walk up to the ridge of Corndon Down. We walk along the top with more wide-ranging views, this time over the West Webburn valley, and cross Sherberton Common back to the car park.
This is the kind of walk to be done in good visibility, so in misty/drizzly weather we will do a more sheltered route.
Meet 9.30 am at Peartree Cross (Shell garage on western edge of Ashburton). We will carshare from there to walk start point and back. Return by 1.30 pm. Cost of walk: £6. Please email or text if you wish to come.
