Sun 12 to Sun 19 Sept: TOTNES WALKING FESTIVAL:  see walks programme

All walks during this period will form the Totnes walking festival and will start in Totnes. The grand opening of the Measured Mile will take place during this week and we hope to generate some specific publicity for the Festival


Late Sep / early Oct: TEMPLER WAY: contact Anna 01803 762751

It is hoped to organise a group walk along the Templer Way, the historic waymarked route between the moor and the sea. It’s seventeen miles between Haytor and Teignmouth –downhill all the way!  If there’s enough interest Anna will organise a minibus to take walkers to Haytor and collect them at the end of the route – this could be on a Wednesday to replace the usual long Wednesday walk or offered as a long Sunday walk. For those who’d like to give it a go, but would like to walk only half of it, there would be the option of catching a bus or train back to Totnes from Newton Abbot. Please let Anna know if you think you’d like to come along


Wed 20 Oct: DARTMOOR WAY: contact Trevor 01803 782348

Dartmoor Way walks will start in October and run one every month from then on.  The aim is to use public transport or car share and cover between 8 and 13 miles on each walk. If you wish to participate you will need to book for each section. The first walk is 10.5 miles between Bovey Tracey and Moretonhampstead


Tue 26 Oct 1900 hrs: AGM: at the Seven Stars in Totnes

Further details will be provided by email. Drinks will be served prior to the meeting. Please make every effort to attend.
