Wednesday, October 11, 2017  WATER-MANATON-BOWERMAN'S NOSE

This is a new route, starting in the hamlet of Water and walking to Manaton Church via the tiny settlement of Horsham.  We walk through the churchyard, across a few fields and along a quiet lane, then climb up on moorland to Bowerman's Nose.  After admiring the wonderful rock pillar and spectacular views, we make our way back over Hayne Down and Hayne Cross to Water.

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.
