|500m Dewey & 400m tops circuit with Lesley from Postbridge (B&B). White Ridge - Assycombe Hill - Birch Tor -Challacombe Down -Hameldown - then back on lanes & through forest.||Chris Pearson||19/02/2009|
|A long walk from Bellever, taking in Hameldon, Hockney Tor, Challacombe Down, Birch Tor, Assycombe Hill, White Ridge and Merripit Hill. After a pint at the Warren House, the day was too fine to end early so I added a few more hills on. Easy going but I find Fernworthy Forest very spooky and unsettling to walk near.||Jake994||01/08/2006|
