Walk overview

Startting in the picturesque village of Gidleigh, we walk northward on paths and lanes alongside the Moortown Brook, and climb onto the moor at Buttern. An ancient track takes us past the farm and medieval enclosures to some Bronze Age hut circles and a small stone circle. Southwards across the open moor brings us to the rather more impressive Scorhill stone circle. We cross a couple of delightful clapper bridges and walk up to some stone rows and across to Kestor which has spectacular views. Then we drop down past some very impressive hut circles and into woodland. Crossing the Teign once again, we climb the other valley side and drop down back to the village.
