2018 Walk list (All)

03/07/2022 | Down Tor Stone Row and the Monastic Way Moderate walk

Walk overview

Starting by Nun’s Cross, we visit the farmhouse and the cross, see where the leat goes underground, then walk southwest over open moorland and past tinworkings and prehistoric settlements to spectacular, lonely Down Tor stone row, one of the most impressive on the moor. We walk via Combeshead Tor and the Deancombe valley to Norsworthy Bridge and take the track to lovely Leather Tor bridge. Here we are walking on the old Monastic Way between Buckfast Abbey and Tavistock. We’ll visit Crazywell Pool (opportunity for a swim if the weather is favourable) and Crazywell Cross, and follow the Devonport Leat all the way back to our start point. Meet at Ashburton Peartree to car share or at start point near Nun’s Cross.
