2018 Walk list (All)

29/05/2021 | Princetown Circuit – along Devonport Leat Moderate walk

Walk overview

There are currently a few places left on this walk which will be led by myself and Geri Skeens, another excellent guide. A pleasant walk taking in some historic features but with splendid views. From Princetown main car park we will set out along the old railway track. Once we reach the Head of the River Meavey we will leave the track to follow the river valley across the road and on to Hart Tor. Stone circles and rows will be our next port of call before crossing the now swelling Meavey to ascend Black Tor and find the logan (rocking) stone. Back down to cross the Meavey again via the aqueduct we will ascend the water course to level out and enjoy a flattish stroll along the Devonport Leat. We will make a short detour to visit Crazy Well Pool, not to be missed! Then back to the Leat to Older Bridge and up to Peat Cot where we will follow a path back to Princetown (not along the main bridleway!).
