Ashburton gateway to Dartmoor

This is one of our most popular walks following part of the Dartmoor Way along the river Ashburn into Whiddon Scrubbs; it then climbs steadily towards Owlacombe cross offering magnificent views of the rolling Dartmoor moors.
It is one of the ten most downloaded walks.

Ashburton,an old stannary town, is definitely worth a visit with its numerous pubs and old-fashioned shops.
