Fairlynch Friends lead the way


Two Friends of Fairlynch will shortly be leading walks organised by the Otter Valley Association but open to all.

On Saturday 30 November David Daniel will be the walk leader on what is described as a short and sociable three-mile walk on the commons to relieve those growing pre-Christmas pressures. The start is at 10.00 am at Wheathill Plantation car park (map ref SY041847).

On Saturday 7 December Brian Turnbull will lead a five-mile moderate walk starting at 10.00 am at Colaton Raleigh Church (map ref SY082872), going down green lanes and over the commons, visiting Dotton, Hawkerland and Knapps land.  There is an optional lunch at the Otter Inn. For more details contact Brian on 01395 567339.
