For information there are road closures effecting some main roads on Dartmoor at the moment to allow for repairs and maintenance to roads and bridges and for damaged cattle grids to be replaced.
Repairs will take place in the Two Bridges, Dartmeet, Poundsgate and Warren House areas, with the B3357, B3212 and B3387 roads affected on these dates:-
- Two Bridges area: 2 September (road open with traffic lights)
- Two Bridges to Hexworthy Turn: 3 to 6 September
- Brimpts Farm to Dartmeet: 11 and 12 September
- Poundsgate to Dartmeet: 13 to 25 September (including cattle grid replacement at Dartmeet)
The estimated five weeks of repairs will see roads close, or partly close over the next couple of months.
With this in mind please be aware that the meeting point for this Sundays walk is on the B3357, and we aim to be there around 10.30. It is on the Two Bridges to Tavistock Road, parking near Yellowmeade Farm entrance. However, the road from Ashburton, through Poundsgate to Dartmeet is closed so we will meet in Totnes as usual at 9.15 for car share, but take the A38 to Drum Bridges and then the Moretonhampstead Road on to the Moor via the B3212 towards Postbridge and Two Bridges to pick up the B3357, Tavistock Road, thus avoiding Poundsgate and Dartmeet. We will travel in convoy!
