Summary

Wednesday, January 17, 2018  NORTH BOVEY CIRCULAR

To celebrate the re-opening of the Ring O'Bells pub in North Bovey, we'll do a walk that starts in that delightful village.  We walk past the church to the river, then walk alongside the Bovey as it flows through woodland and then into the grounds of Bovey Castle.  Here we pick up a footpath that takes us across the valley and onto a lane which leads to a track through woodland below Easdon Tor.  The final stretch is on another quiet lane back into the village.  If there's time, we can have a quick drink in the pub!

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.
