Sunday, 24th October Dewerstone Circular
Starting at Shaugh Bridge, we have a brief stretch on the lane and then walk up to join the Drake's Trail at Shaugh Halt from where we walk along the old railway line and through a (drippy) tunnel. Soon after we turn off and join a path that runs through lovely woodland in the Meavy valley, passing through an old quarry. Further on we find ourselves above the River Plym and climb up to Dewerstone Tor with magnificent views. We walk over Wigford Down to Cadover Bridge and then return on the other side of the Plym, through more woodland and the remains of the china clay works.
Cost of walk: £10
