Summary

Sunday, February 24th  Fingle Bridge - Wooston Hillfort - Halls Cleave Wood - Teign River   (No walk on February 10th)

Fingle Woods have for some years now been owned jointly by the National Trust and the Woodland Trust.  They are managing them to promote biodiversity and public access.  We will walk first up to Wooston Hillfort, one of 3 Iron Age hillforts in this part of the Teign valley.  It's had a lot of trees cleared so the structure of the settlement can be seen more clearly.  Then we'll carry on further up the valley side

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.
