Tuesday 20th September Higher Hartor Tor

Bright sunny skies were not forecast but very nice they were too. Just for a change only one other car at the car park.

Up to Gutter Tor with this fine view towards Sheeps Tor and Leather Tor

The 'frying pan' on top - eroded by the weather.

Down again and on to Whittenknowles Rocks.

Then the Standing Stone and stop on the cairn nearby for coffee.

Up to Higher Hartor Tor.

Wednesday 14th September Bennets Cross

Starting from Bennets Cross we headed over to Kings Oven..... 

...then to the cairn on Water Hill.

But this was committee walk and it was decided to go back down to the road to explore the old girts south east of the Warren House Inn. Through these, in the moonlight and on to the Vitifer Mine for a coffee stop.  Next up to the stone row on Challacombe Hill. Returning over Birch Tor.

Mike had gone into the Warren House Inn before the walk but they were not interested in staying open after their appointed closing time of 10.00pm to allow us to have a drink. So it was back to the Prince of Wales which could I think become our default pub when we are in the centre of the moor. With Raz, Stella, Brenda and Jon

Tuesday 13th September Widecombe Fair

Our second annual walk to Widecombe Fair. Wet to start with as we headed up to Grimspound, around pas the Blue Jug to follow the path which runs along the eastern side of Hamel Down. Last time we were here it was easy going but with the bracken over six feet high it was hard going. At least the rain had stopped.

Approaching Wooder Goyle Rocks.

Down the steep track to the fair.  A huge clap of thunder as we arrived. Much to see and do.

The dog and duck show.

Ferret racing

Uncle Tom Cobley sitting on his horse in the middle of the village.

After a couple of hours and refreshments it was back up the steep track to return on the Two Moors Way.

A brief stop at Hamel Down Cross.

Finally back down to Grimspound.
