The larger group left the car park at Lowery Cross to go around the top of the reservoir, following the leat for a while before going down to Norsworthy Bridge.
Next to the car park by the arboretum (where the others had started) and then through the arboretum to follow the path west of Sheeps Tor
With fantastic view across the reservoir
...to Leather Tor
...Yennadon Down (with the lower water line visble)
...Peek Hill plantation
Across to Gutter Tor
Into Sheeps Tor churchyard to see the tomb of the Rajah of Sarawak.
...and a slow worm slithering around in the grass
Then on to the bluebell woods......
Before going on to the Royal Oak at Meavy where we caught up with Bud, Christine, Charlie and Brian. Rosemary produced Ling to meet with Dukis
After lunch we returned to the cars by following the path up to the original leat which ran from below Burrator Dam and then up on to Yennadon Down.
