25/08/19 -- Merrivale area

A moderate 6 mile walk, mainly along tracks with a short stretch on hardy used roads. Plenty of moorland views (potentially!), industrial archaeology and Bronze Age remains. We shall head south from Merrivale down the Walkham Valley before turning east towards Ingra Tor and then follow the old railway track around Swelltor Quarries and King's Tor before finally passing stone rows and standing stones. There is one uphill section, bracken and a stream to be negotiated,so poles would be useful.
