13 walkers met today at Station Road Car Park for Helen’s Bovey Tracey to Lustleigh circular walk. The weather was glorious with clear blue skies.
We set off walking along the River Bovey before joining the road to Lustleigh. At Knowle we took a right turn up a steepish path before entering Higher Knowle Wood which shortly led us into Lustleigh.
Lunch was eaten in the village’s community orchard, the upkeep of which is paid for by the sale of apples and mistletoe which grows in clumps on the apple trees, hence we were not allowed to pick any!!
After lunch we started walking back along the road towards Bovey after which we joined the upper path taking us through the woods along the old railway line which brought us back to where we started.
Walk distance 7 miles.
Thanks to Mike for backmarking
