|From lay-by to south. Path to Trig. Had to disturb a number of Exmoor Ponies who were Trig bagging themselves to reach trig.
They soon returned once I left.||PeterD||27/06/2018|
|Ran from Withypool up to Withypool Hill across to Withypool Common. Then down to the River Barle which I walked through and up to Thornmeade Hill with a return along the Two Moors Way.
