I had a call from some friends who were down for the week, just over the border in Cornwall. they wanted a walk on Dartmoor, which would a) tire the kids out a bit, b) take in a leat and finally show them some tors and rocks. I figured Burrator was a good starting point and the Devonport Leat was the target, heading off up the path from Norsworthy Bridge, up to Crazywell Pool and back along the leat. As it turned out the weather was brilliant, warm, but not too warm. We saw everything on the list, including Dartmoor ponies, sheep and a cross!! Cracking walk.
|Start – Norsworthy Bridge|
|Route – Crazywell Pool – Crazywell Cross – Devonport Leat – Raddick Hill – Leathertor Farm – Leather Tor Bridge – Norsworthy Bridge|
|Distance – 4 miles Start time – 10.45am Time taken – 2 hr 15 mins Highest Point – Above Crazywell Pool 380m|
|Weather – Bright, sunny, warm = lovely|
One thought on “Crazywell Pool and Devonport Leat”
Fascinating looking walk. I haven’t been back to Dartmoor since I was a kid. We used to holiday in Westward Ho! and a day trip to Dartmoor was always a highlight. I need a trip down there to explore some of the sights and rekindle some old memories
