On Sunday, 4 knights and 11 Ladies met for the 6th leg of the perambulation. The Baggator car park proved a bit snug for the cars, but after some shuffling and plenty of reversing, we all convened at Peter Tavy and set off to the start of the walk at Whiteworks.
It was a lovely day for walking, plenty of sunshine and a breeze. The walk crossed several high points and the views in all directions were magnificent. We were spoiled for choice of which way to face as we ate our lunch at the top of Great Mis Tor. In climbing the tor, we met a contingent of soldiers who we had met earlier at Baggator whilst parking the cars. They looked exhausted then, carrying huge packs and heavy guns, and still looked as though they wished “they were nearly there” when we met again. We were very glad to be only carrying day sacks and enjoying our walk!
After crossing the Walkham, we made our way up to Limsboro’ Cairn on the top of Lynch Tor, via White Barrow. The cairn marked the end of the stretch of the Forest Boundary covered this time. We will start again from this point on the next leg on Saturday 13th August. Hope you can join us.
