Ashburton - River and Woods

Leaving the ancient market town of Ashburton, we cross open fields with grand views over the lush countryside while following the River Ashburn with its wooded banks. After crossing a lane and another open field, we enter woodland and are soon in a beautiful oak-wood with the river running alongside our path for almost a kilometre, before we leave it and climb uphill to see more vistas over the countryside and views of Dartmoor in the distance. Joining quiet country lanes for a scenic kilometre, we return through fields to Ashburton.

Nice little walk on a sunny day. My only "criticisms" would be: a) On step 9, for clarity could add that the farm track uphill is signposted "Owlacombe Cross" b) Also on step 9, if you do this walk mid-August then the "good views to your left" are somewhat restricted by tall hedgerows! c) Steps 11 & 12, not sure about the distances (300m, 600m, 400m) - The 300m seemed very short compared to the other distances.
