This walk: 2008-5-8. Batworthy, Kes Tor (or Kestor Rock on the OS map) on Chagford Common, the Long Stone, along the Teignhead Road (Harvey map) north-west wall of Fernworthy Forest, seeing the memorial to a marine along the way, as far as the North Teign River near Teignbridge Farm to see the clapper bridge memorial to FHS again. The return was for the most part back along the same route but diverting to revisit antiquities on Shovell Down. This walk relates to the 2008-4-14_WaternTor walk when Kes Tor was removed from the route.

 

View towards Scorhill Circle from the path between Batworthy and Kes Tor.
