Wednesday 20th March Foxtor Mires
After a break in warmer places it was back to Dartmoor on a cool still night. We set out from Whiteworks, going across the Straine River following the very wet footpath over the south eastern corner of Royal Hill to the three stones just above the dam of the Swincombe reservoir.
From here we went down to the reservoir and up to Wheal Emma Leat, following this for a while. At the junction with the wall we set off to Childe's Tombe.
The final part of the walk was to take the very wet, soggy and boggy footpath through the western edge of Foxtor Mires - not a place to go without a leader who knows the way through!
With Mike, Jon, Stella, Charles and Pete
