Summary

Scoriton Down & Gibby Combe - We'll do this one when lockdown is over

This walk climbs steadily out of Scoriton village with marvellous views opening up of the moorland ahead and the lowlands behind us.  We walk across Scoriton Down (look out for the large herd of deer that live there) with the River Mardle to our left and then reach the source of the Holy Brook.  The walk continues across moorland above the Holy Brook valley and Gibby Coombe wood, coming out onto a quiet lane in Michelcombe, which we follow back to Scoriton.

Meet 10 am at Scoriton village.  Return by 1.30 pm.  Cost of walk: £6.  Please email or text if you wish to come.
