Mustard Seed Walks will wrap up warmly and brave the heights from Natsworthy gate, visiting King’s Tor, Hookney Tor and Hameldown. We are looking forward to starting the year with clear crisp skies, perfect for taking photos of the superb views this walk will offer – I do hope the weather forecasters are reading this!

08/02/2020 | Follow the Leat!

Mustard Seed Walks will congregate at Princetown before walking south along the bridal path passing South Hessary Tor. We will leave the path to join the Devonport Leat will will give us a delightful walk with extended views towards Burrator Reservoire. A rocky descent will bring us to an aqueduct and then we will ascend to Hart Tor and seek out some points of interest before returning to Princetown with its wonderful watering haunt!

Mustard Seed Walks will take a lovely lofty hike from Bennet’s Cross, close to the Warren House Inn. We will set off along the Two Moors Way, dropping into Grimspound Bronze Age Village. We will then pick up a path which will take us south the Challacombe Medieval Village before circling around to return to the car park through this area once rich in mining activity.

25/04/2020 | Exploring hound Meldon Reservoire

Mustard Seed Walks will repeat this superb walk which will take us over Meldon Reservoire dam and following the flooded valley up to Black-a-Tor Copse. A short stiff climb will take us to Black Tor, then walking back towards the quarry (keep a look out for spent musket balls!). The walk will finish by visiting the fascinating mining areas below the dam. This walk may be extended to take in the Red-a-ven Brook valley.
