Wednesday, June 12th, 2019  Whitchurch Common

From the big car park on Pork Hill, we walk south over the common and pick up the old packhorse track to Moortown, before heading over to Pewtor to admire the rock formations and stunning views.  From here we take in Heckwood and Feather Tors, then drop down to the leat at Windy Post Cross.  We follow the leat around the side of Barn Hill and head up the valley to our start point.

Meet 9.30 am at Peartree Cross (Shell garage on western edge of Ashburton).  We will carshare from there to walk start point and back.  Return by 1.30 pm.  Cost of walk: £6.  Please email or text if you wish to come.
