Summary

Sunday, June 16th  Belstone - Taw Valley - Halstock Wood - Nine Stones

We walk southwards from the lovely village of Belstone, along the Taw Valley with Belstone Tor on our right and Cosdon Hill on the left.  Soon after the Horseshoe Ford, we walk over Higher Tor and Winter Tor, then cross the East Okement at Cullever Steps.  (If it's a hot day, there's a pool to swim in just downstream from this point.)  The path takes us up the side of the valley to Halstock, where we enter some delightful woods and drop down to a footbridge back over the East Okement.  A short steep climb takes us back up the valley side to Nine Stones Cairn Circle, from where it's an easy stroll back into the village.

Meet at Ashburton Peartree at 11 am and carshare from there.  Return by 5.00 pm.  Cost of walk:  £8.  Please email or text if you wish to come.
