Wembury to Ivybridge on the Erme-Plym Trail
It was back in February that I picked up a leaflet in my local library publicising the Two Moors Way.I recalled seeing signs for this during previous walks in the area but hadn't much of an idea about the route in its entirety.

Withypool to Lynmouth on the Two Moors Way
In contrast to the darkness and drizzle the night before, the final day of our Two Moors Way challenge dawned bright and clear.Having eaten well, drank sensibly and slept early, we were surprisingly refreshed and ready for the final push.

Witheridge to Withypool and the River Barle
It feels like a slightly different world than when I first came up with a plan to do the Two Moors Way (TMW).The seed had been sown in the excitement of relocating to Devon and a shift in lifestyle that allowed a bit more time for adventures and a little less of the '9 to 5'.

Drewsteignton to Witheridge - 22 miles in the rain
Have you ever had one of those days on the hills, that when you think about the constituent parts it wasn't that special. But somehow the bits altogeter - the sum of those parts - made it great?

Widecombe in the Moor to Drewsteignton (and a bit more)
Some months had passed since our previous leg of the Two Moors Way had ended in the dark.Since then a new job had lessened the opportunity for mid-week days out and a plan to beat the seasonal heat had been curtailed at short notice due to illness.

Dunstone Down to Above Scorriton on the Two Moors Way
For the dedicated car-free walker, this leg of the Two Moors Way route requires planning over spontaneity and on this occasion, a degree of dedication over reason.It being half term, I had freed myself of mid-week parental responsibilities to be able to make use of the once a week bus service from Buckfastleigh to Widecombe in the Moor.

Ivybridge to above Scorriton on the Two Moors Way
It was hard not to feel a little blessed as I waited for opening time at The Watermark in Ivybridge. It was the first day of October, I had a day off work during the week and had been lucky enough to choose one in the calm before the first of the season's proper named storms.
