The 10th in a series of 15 individual circular walks along the West Devon Way. The section of the WDW in Walk 9 ended at Harford bridge before returning to Tavistock. There is not a lot of parking at Harford Bridge so we are going to start this walk in the village of Peter Tavy. It's just under a mile to walk down to to Harford Bridge and it is a fairly quiet country lane with a bit of a pavement in places. Starting at Harford Bridge the West Devon Way goes across 7 fields before reaching the edge of Mary Tavy next to the Hydro Electric power Station returning via disused mine workings prehistoric settlements at White Tor and Stevens Grave. A walk that takes in a village, farmland, woodland and moor and ends up quite close to one of my favourite pubs. You can shorten this walk by several miles by taking a shortcut. The short cut walk will only take just over an hour with the longer walk about another two hours.
For those of you interested in Neolithic archaeology look up White tor on the internet before you go and see if you can identify the settlements hut circles and hillfort when you get there. They are all quite easy to see.
