Walk overview

From the CP we will drop down over the bridge and past Dunnabridge Pounds towards Laughter Hole Farm.  Our first set of stepping stones are across the East Dart River. A pleasant stroll will take us through a farm and we will follow the river to Badger’s Holt.  Then through Huccaby and over Hexworthy Bridge to Hexworthy.  A road towards Sherberton will take us to the next set of stepping stones before our last grand arc of stones take us across the West Dart River (see photo).
