Summary

Wednesday, December 11th  Bonehill-Honeybag Ridge 

Starting at the car park on the main road near Harefoot Cross, we walk northwards to Bonehill Rocks, onto Bonehill Down and follow the line of tors along the ridge above the Widecombe valley.  We walk as far as Honeybag Tor and then drop down to the Saxon Lane which we follow back to Bonehill and return to our start point.  

Note:  For those that have booked, we will be having lunch together at the Cafe on the Green after the walk.  Others will need to drive back in separate vehicles.

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.
