Good to be back with the Tuesday group for a Dartmoor walk. The weather threw everything at us today. Bright sunshine at the start but with a bitterly cold wind as we left Combestone Tor and went down to Combestone. Along the track which leads across to Venford.
A very heavy shower over the dam and then down to Venford Falls on the the Venford Brook.
Up to follow the pipeline track for a while....
....and then the path up to Bench Tor. Looking down the Dart valley
Across to Mel Tor
Then back down to the dam over the reservoir and gently up to Horns Cross.
As we walked down to the cars a heavy hail storm which made for a very tricky drive out down the steep and twisty road at Hexworthy. The sleet turned to snow on the way to...
....Princetown which had been turned into a winter wonderland.
The Prince of Wales was busy with a private party so it was on to the Plume of Feathers.
With Raz, Stella, Jon, Charlie, Terry, Peter, Brenda, Anne, Bill and Phil.
