Convener: Julian Tippett
2nd Friday each month - we meet at 10.30 am
Each month we choose a route from our glorious countryside of three miles or a little over, typically ending at or near a pub for a convivial lunch. In recent times we have numbered about ten hardy souls. Should you wish to join in just turn up at the meeting point for a 10.30 start, or consult me about anything you are unsure about. Julian

We walk from Knowle along country paths and lanes on a circuit via Nethercott and North Buckland, about 4 miles. There’s one fairly steep climb near the start, otherwise easy going.
If you would like to take the bus to Knowle, a 21 leaves St James Place, Ilfracombe at 9:50.
Leader: Wal Daw
Meet/park: Ebrington Arms CP, Knowle.
Lunch (optional): Ebrington Arms

For this month’s walk we park on the Simonsbath Road for a walk up to Pinkery Pond high on the remote Chains moorland. It’s easy walking, apart from the odd soggy patch if we have had a lot of rain. About three miles.
Leaders: Jacqueline and Quentin Cox
Parking: Two miles after Challacombe — after passing the drive to an outdoor centre on a sharp RH bend, after half a mile more, park in the second large gravelly area.
Lunch (optional): Black Venus at Challacombe or Old Station House Inn, Blackmoor Gate, decide on the day.
