DEWLISH

Park considerately along the roadside in Dewlish, meet up outside the Oak pub. Limited parking so please car share. A walk of about 6 miles from a quaint sleepy village, some fairly gentle hills in a rural backwater. There are a couple of stiles, and we will need to cross a field of inquisitive young cows who are likely to follow us. Optional stop at an original pub at the walkÕs end provides a pleasant spot to enjoy refreshments in the garden, amongst the free range chickens.
