Dulverton

A short article on Dulverton:     It's not just shops and cafés, it is the start of many excellent walks!

Walks now complete! (Until I add some more)

All the 50 planned walks are now up (the much-delayed Exford to Simonsbath route went on last week), and I have also added detailed notes on the Herepath. 

As I do additional walks that I think are worth including I will put them on:  two extra ones from Dulverton have just gone up (27A Tarr Steps and 28A the Ansteys), and plans over the winter are for a coastal walk near Ilfracombe and a circuit from Wheddon Cross.  I must also add a coastal walk to the Quantocks section.

New Croydecycle map Dulverton & Tarr Steps

There's a new Croydecycle map just out covering the area between Dulverton, Winsford and Withypool:  http://www.croydecycle.co.uk/north-devon-walking-maps_large.htm#dulverton  Covers walks 27, 28, most of 25, and planned 27A.  This is my home territory and I'm finding it very useful - I now have multiple copies!

One correction to the bus information on the map, the 198 bus to Wheddon Cross, Dunster and Minehead leaves Dulverton at 10am (via Winsford and Exford) and 3pm (direct).  There's also an earlier bus, at 7.10am on Saturdays and school holidays (via Winsford and Exford), and 7.50am (bus 467) on schooldays (not via Winsford and Exford!).  I find the 10am bus useful for connecting walks such as 24, 25, 26 and 29.
