Summary

Wednesday 2 December 2020   Emsworthy & Holwell

This walk covers some familiar ground but is a new route around the upper reaches of the Becka Brook.  We walk below Saddle Tor, over Emsworthy Rocks, below Holwell Tor and then down to cross the Becka Brook on the new clapper bridge.  Here we enter Emsworthy Mire Nature Reserve and follow the brook upstream, through woodland, meadows and heathland.  We cross the valley again and return to our start point passing the ruined buildings and restored stone walls of what was Emsworthy Farm.

Cost of walk: £8.
