On November 11th six intrepid walkers, undeterred by rain and wind, walked from Hound Tor car park via Jay’s grave and Heathercombe onto the lower slopes of Hameldown where we visited the memorial to the airmen killed in 1941 when their returning bomber plane crashed in poor visibility on the moor nearby.

It was not, unfortunately, a great day for views and some considered the best view of the day to be at the very end of the walk.
