Summary

Sunday, July 23rd, 2017.   DRIZZLECOMBE-SHAVERCOMBE-DITSWORTHY WARREN   

This walks takes us first to Eylesbarrow tin mine, a massive enterprise in the 19th century with many remains dotted around the landscape.  We cross the Drizzlecombe valley and walk through the spectacular Bronze Age ceremonial site, complete with stone rows, graves and some huge standing stones.  Then we cross the River Plym and walk up to hidden Shavercombe Falls - if it's hot, it's a good place for a plunge.  From here we walk along the Plym to the weir where there's a good pool for a proper swim for those that want it.  The final stretch takes us back past Ditsworthy Warren Farm where the film War Horse was shot - a very atmospheric spot.

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
