Sunday, October 1, 2017. BELSTONE TOR - CULLEVER STEPS - FITZ'S WELL - HALSTOCK WOOD
We start in the lovely village of Belstone and walk out to Belstone Tor via the Nine Maidens circle. From here we climb up to Belstone Tor and walk along it as far as the Irishman's Wall, where we descend to the river and cross it at Cullever Steps. Walking north along the other side of the valley we visit Fitz's Well and loop around the hill to pick up the footpath that runs through beautiful woodlands alongside the East Okement. We cross the river again at Halstock wood and climb out of the valley and back to the village. There's a nice tea room there so we might stop for a cuppa at the end if people feel like it.
Meet at Peartree garage at 11.00 am. Return by 4.30/5.00 pm. We'll share cars from Ashburton. Please email or text me if you wish to come. Cost of walk: £8
