This 5 mile circular walk the 7th in a series of 15 circular walks along the West Devon Way will take you through the northern part of Roborough Down to where the River Walkham meets the River Tavy at a place called Double Waters. From there you will walk up the River Walkham on its northern bank through some delightful oak woodland to Grenofen Bridge passing moss encrusted mine workings. The best time to do this walk is first thing in the morning on a sunny summers day when the light is trickling through the tree canopy. You will go over Gem bridge built in 2012 just for leisure use and which spans the Walkham valley. There is a cafe at Long Ash garden centre which is where we start the walk and from where we pick up the West Devon Way as it goes past the car park.
