Teignmouth & Dawlish Ramblers

Walking in South Devon

Message Board

Unfortunately we have had to change the Evening Walk planned for Wednesday 25th July as the Manager of The Pig and Whistle Pub has refused us permission to park in his car park
Instead the walk is as follows:

Meet 7.0 pm Viaduct Dawlish (GR 964765) for a walk along Lady's Mile to Dawlish Warren returning along the seawall. About 3 miles
Leader Anne Mc

PLEASE NOTE the Walk originally planned for 25th will become a Tea Shop Walk on 1st September - with a different start point (ie the Berry Pomeroy Castle Car park)

On the Moors around Gidleigh, and Scorhill on a 'Summer's Day.'

On Sunday 8th October 19 Teignmouth & Dawlish Ramblers ventured onto Dartmoor with heavy ruck sacks full of wet weather gear whilst they were only wearing their last base layer on a summer like day.

The walkers included two new members from the Peak District who had never walked Dartmoor before.They were in for a treat as we set of from Scorhill Farm down by Gidleigh via North and South Park woods and on to Frenchbeer Rock and Middle Tor where a sun bathed lunch was taken. We then skirted Kestor before looking at the Tolmen in the hope of alleviating arthritic joints. Then it was over the tiny Teign to reach Scorhill stone circle before returning to the double parked car park.

Added entertainment included a bull at Teigncombe, concerned turkeys at Frenchbeer and both modern and traditional pony drives on the moor.
Many thanks to Karen and Barbara for an inspiring walk on a beautiful day.
