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
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
