Wednesday 23rd September  Rippon Tor & Rifle Butts

From Cold East Cross we walk up to the top of Rippon Tor with its spectacular views, recumbent cross and prehistoric cairns.  We walk across Horridge Common and drop down to Mountsland Common where we follow a pretty track along the side of the hill with views out towards the coast.  We loop around through the atmospheric Rifle Butts and then across undulating moorland back to our start point.

Cost of walk: £8.
