Meet at the Ditsworthy Warren House car park near Nattor.
This is an opportunity to see more dressing floor/ blowing house remains than can be seen on any other day walk- 11- and there is a contrast of regular 19th Century-type floors up the Drizzlecombe valley and earlier medieval? ones on the Plym. Also a spectacular reservoir and interesting leats. The walk is about 5 miles, mostly on paths but we will have to cross the Plym which hopefully will not be in full spate. Bring lunch. No need to contact leader in advance unless weather looks particularly bad.

Saturday 22 June 2019
2:00pm - 5:00pm West Vitifer and Bushdown Mine Walk Venue: Bennett's Cross carpark at SX 681 817 on the B3212
Category: dtrg
We will explore the tin working remains of Bushdown Mine and West Vitifer Mine, the latter a mid- 19th Century working, in a pleasant stroll down what is now called the North Walla Brook. The Vitifer mine, although small and having no great history, is in an attractive location and has all the features one would expect of a mine of this vintage. We will see what is possibly Dartmoor's most picturesque tree! The going is fairly easy, a bit wet in places and across heather moor, using paths where possible. No need to contact leader before coming unless the weather looks particularly bad.
