From Postbridge to Fernworthy

Was out on the moor yesterday helping with the National Trust’s Wild Tribe 10 Tors teams. As ever we were out with the great crew from Torquay Boys Grammar School. We walked from Postbridge up the East Dart and onto Grey Wethers, from there up to Watern Tor and returned to Fernworthy reservoir via Scorhill and Yes Tor.

For an unknown reason the trace conked out near to Kes Tor …

It was a misty day

The beehive

Grey Wethers – the double stone circles in the gloom

Looking from Fernworthy Forest up towards Watern

The clapper bridge at Teign Head farm – my mate Dave Rickwood contemplating

The first bit of Watern Tor

Looking east through the Thirlestone

Saw a red grouse on the approach to Watern Tor and saw a merlin on the way to Scorhill.

And then my phone battery conked out …..

Really good 11.5. mile walk – well done to all the teams and adult helpers

  1. Wonderful Adrian, in 1991 my wife and I spent six weeks wandering from Bovey Tracey to Lands End and beyond and we have great memories of many stone rings and other features looming out of the fog.
