Bench Tor, Week Ford & Holne Moor  We'll do this one when lockdown is over

Starting at Venford Reservoir  we first do a loop through White Wood, below Bench Tor, then cross the dam and follow the leat along the top of the Dart Valley before dropping down through Combestone Farm to Week Ford.  We walk upstream along the delightful O Brook as far as Saddle Bridge, then climb up to Holne Moor, visit Horn's Cross and cut across the open moor back to the reservoir.

Meet at Venford Reservoir (east car park) 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.
