Summary

Wednesday 27th October   Scorriton Down & Gibby Combe

From Scorriton, we take the track that climbs all the way onto Scorriton Down with magnificent views opening up around us.  We walk alongside beautiful beech trees in the deer farm and reach the source of the Holy Brook.  From here we follow the valley down, passing Gibby Combe, and emerge in Michelcombe from where we have a short spell of lane walking back to the start point.

Cost of walk: £8.
