There and back by the Teign
Meet: Newton Poppleford Rec CP (OS 115 SY 088 899) at 0945 to share cars or meet at the start point.
Start: Castle Drogo NT CP (OS OL28 725 904) at 10.30, car park free for NT members, 9 miles, 4.5 hours.
Starting at Castle Drogo, we walk down to the beautiful Teign Valley and proceed along the river passing several old mills and leats and over the ancient Chagford Bridge. We then walk up a quiet lane to the historic Stannary town of Chagford for our picnic lunch. We then retrace our steps to Castle Drogo. The bad news is there is a sharp climb at the end of the walk; the good news is that the Castle Drogo cafe does a fair cream tea!
