Walk update - 16 June 2019 from Withypool

16 June 2019, information about the all day walk starting at Withypool.

Currently Exmoor is extremely wet with mud and streams running through. The plan is to walk along the 2 moors way from Tarr Steps back to Withypool.

At the moment this is challenging in places where the river has risen and streams have been created running down off the moor into the Barle. It was recced yesterday but this did involve scrambling over rocks and walking through water.

It looks like the rain will continue for the next couple of days.

As this is quite a hilly walk and with difficult conditions the actual route may vary.

Walk cancellation - 05 May 2019

The walk Sunday 05 May 2019 - "Baltonsborough via East Pennard" - has been cancelled

Walk cancellation - 12 April 2019

Today's Friday walk - "Pawlett Hams Wetlands" - starting at Pawlett Barrage Balloon Hangar has been cancelled as Lyn is unable to lead the walk.
