15/12/2019 | Moderate walk

Walk overview

This is a lovely loop above first the Dart valley and then the Webburn valley, with a stretch alongside the Dart itself. Starting at Beltor Corner, we walk the length of Dr Blackall’s Drive above the Dart Valley and drop down past Leigh Tor to the River Dart at Spitchwick. We follow the river for a while and then walk uphill through Great Wood and Lower Town to the lane which takes us past Leusdon church and the Green (this part is quite steep). We follow the lane to Ponsworthy, walking above the wooded Webburn valley, and turn uphill (again) past Splash Cottage and return to our start point across Sherberton Common.
