Summary

Sunday, June 25, 2017.   FERNWORTHY-TEIGNHEAD FARM-SITTAFORD STONE CIRCLE-GREY WETHERS

Four stone circles in one walk!  The first is found in Fernworthy forest as we walk away from the reservoir towards the open moor.  Once out of the forest, we make a little detour over the North Teign River to visit ruined Teignhead Farm, one of the most remote on Dartmoor.  Then we walk down the valley and up Sittaford Tor where the newly discovered stone circle lies (literally, as all the stones are horizontal rather than vertical).  Dropping back down from the tor, we come to Grey Wethers where two stone circles stand together on a plateau,  We then walk down alongside the infant South Teign River and back through the forest.

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
