Christmas 10 Tors Walk

We were out on the moor yesterday for our traditional Christmas training walk. Our potential 45 and 55 mile teams started at the Dartmoor Inn at Lydford and crossed the moor to Merrivale. It was a glorious crisp morning.

Xmas walk 2Traditionally with this walk we go to Fice’s Well on the Blackabrook where Tony supplies chocolates at the well

There is a Pixie legend based around Fice’s Well – see here – in addition to that story the well water has been linked with ¬†therapeutic qualities associated with curing eye problems!
