Sunday 27th September Houndtor Vale Circular 6.5 miles
Starting near Saddle Tor, we walk through the wonderful Emsworthy Mire Nature Reserve, around Holwell Lawn to the deserted medieval village and down to the Becka Brook. We loop around to the base of Black Hill, climb up to the top and walk over to Smallacombe Rocks and the Bronze Age village. We follow the Granite Tramway back towards Emsworthy Rocks and walk back below Saddle Tor (or over it if you're feeling energetic).
Cost of walk: £10
