Walk leader: Cherry Bird and John Evans: In a summer of non-stop sunshine and dry weather, we managed to choose a day with some wind and rain for this walk from Trentishoe to Combe Martin along the coast path and returning inland. But that’s Exmoor for you. Fortunately the sun did make an appearance forContinue reading “Coast Path Trentishoe to Combe Martin”
Dartmoor Way by Cherry Bird A dedicated small group of us completed two more days of the Dartmoor Way, managing to avoid the thunderstorms and heavy rain that kindly fell overnight.

Well done to Cherry and John who kindly stepped in to lead my Porlock Walk on 15th May. The hills are quite a challenge without the added complexity of trying to work out some one else’s walk! So many thanks. Here are some photos of the day from George Slabbert with thanks. Woody
Spring Walk, March 2022. Leader, Woody
A sunny spring day brought out 11 walkers for a nine mile walk from Horner through the Holnicote Estate, passing through fields with new born lambs. Over to Bossington where we climbed up the steep rugged coast path looking down at the blue sea. A slight haze obscured the full views but didn’t spoil the view from the old coast house over Porlock marsh where we discussed the history of the land. A steady climb on up to Selworthy Beacon into the cold stiff breeze. Lunch spot bought us some shelter at the Ackland Memorial Hut. Our walk entailed a steady descent, over to the Iron Age settlement, Bury Castle and on through woods and ancient sunken lanes returning to Horner in time to pick up an ice cream from Horner farm. Lovely to see familiar faces and meet new or recent members.
