Robbers Bridge - Oare - Badgeworthy Water - Great Tom's Hill - South Common - Stowey Ridge Circular

Explore a part of Exmoor that has remained almost totally unchanged. Reading 'Lorna Doone', you can almost imagine the time when travellers rode their horses over these moors from Dulverton to Oare. The tracks and streams are timeless and in any season, the colours breathtaking. Look out for trout jumping at Weir Water, larks singing over South Common and if you're lucky, spot red deer and Exmoor pony. But be careful, although you are only crossing a short section of the open moor, it is easy to miss the way if it becomes misty or in heavy rain. Make time to go into Oare Church, pause to gaze at the water over the slide and stand and look around on Tom's Hill; don't rush this walk it is too precious.
