The weather in September down here in the south west corner of Devon has been pretty abysmal. Particularly at the weekends. This was only my second Deon based walk this month, and like the last it was very short and between the rain showers. Bring on the colder weather. This walk is an easy one, its an easy one for me to get to as well. There’s very little ascent, two tors and a bit of WW2 history. The area up here was used as an aircraft gunnery placement to try and draw planes away from Plymouth and up to this spot were they would be fired upon. Judging by the fact that Plymouth was flattened and required everything to be rebuilt I’m not sure they were very successful. Despite the weather it was just good to get out again with my two boys.
