As we have found out this summer, we have enjoyed some beautiful days, weatherwise, just right for ambling along, noting down plant names and learning new ones but there were a few notable days that were awful and only the hardiest kept going! Ever the optimist, Ian decided to run a programme of walks this autumn (see the list on our forum) and this is one of the closest.

If it is a pleasant day, walking up and over Sharp Tor will be lovely and there are still plants in flower (saw a primrose & violet out last week...) and even better to learn to recognise plants from leaves, fruits and seed heads. And we'll be on the look out for winter birds as well.

Depending on the choice of route, it is safe to assume that there will be some steep climbs over quite rough ground in places but off the moor, we will be following footpaths and lanes. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear!

If you intend to leave early, just let Ian know. And we may finish before 4pm especially if the weather changes for the worse.

Because of the chance of inclement weather, Ian is asking everyone to let him know if they intend to join in so that cancellations can be notified.

Might even be some cake at the end....
