...and then up to the leat but they clearly hadn't come this way.
Next down to the River Meavy but there was no way we or they were going across just there.
We decided to do our own route - up between Leather Tor and Sharpitor then a loupe back to the cars.
Past the ponies sheltering from the rain.
As we approached Sharpitor we heard a dog barking and then saw the main group. We joined them and went back down again for the coffee stop at the abandoned farm where the leat comes out of the woods.
Along the leat....
...over the aqueduct....
...and up the other side.
Past this overflow from the leat and along to Crazy Well Pool.
Then down Raddick Lane track and back to the cars. A really wet day for a walk and the ground has become totally saturated too. Lunch was at the Royal Oak. There was a bit of a mix up with one order but the food is usually quite good and so it was today. With Peter, Stella, Charlie, Jon, Bill, Jane, Colin, Amber, Brenda and Terry.
