Summary

Sunday, April 21st  Aish-Corringdon Ball-Didworthy & Avon valley

Starting in South Brent we walk alongside the Avon to lovely Lydia Bridge, then take quiet lanes up through Aish and onto Aish Ridge.  The path takes us along the edge of Corringdon Ball to Ball Gate, and we dip down into the East Glazebrook valley to visit the prehistoric sites and enjoy a streamside lunch.  Returning past the remains of the Neolithic burial chamber, we walk across high moor for a stretch before dropping down into the Avon valley along an ancient track.  We cross the river at Didworthy and walk southwards above the river through delightful meadows and woods (there may be some bluebells, certainly lots of spring flowers in general) all the way back to South Brent.

Meet at Ashburton Peartree at 11 am and carshare from there.  Return by 4.30 pm.  Cost of walk:  £8.  Please email or text if you wish to come.
