Walk Waypoints

  1. 1 Start in the centre of Lifton. Turn left opposite the bus shelter into North Road and follow this as it bears right past the school and out of the village. After 500m, the road bears right over a river. Here, take the minor road which forks to the left. Continue along this road for just over 800m.
  2. 2 Go through the gate on the right just before the road starts to climb fairly steeply, signed as a public bridleway. Follow alongside the hedge, keeping it on your left, then bear away to the right to cross the stone bridge over the River Wolf. Follow the track ahead, climbing to the right and following as it winds uphill as a green lane.
  3. 3
    Continue on this lane to a metalled road passing Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre, and continue to a road junction. Continue ahead at the junction and then at the T-junction with the main road turn left.
  4. 4
    Carefully follow this road for 400m, making use of the verges, then turn right along a metalled track. Keep ahead past private residences as the road becomes a sometimes muddy green lane. At the top keep ahead through two gates, and then follow a path as it descends to the right through the trees, bearing left at a fork in the paths. Follow the path past a cottage and continue to the road.
  5. 5
    Turn right and continue up the road to Stowford village, passing the church. From the church follow the road round to the left. Where the road bears right, continue straight ahead on a concrete track.
  6. 6
    After the cattle grid leave the track passing through a gate on your right. Follow the hedge on your right and pass through the furthest gate to the left of the group on the opposite site of the field. Cross the field with the hedge on your right , and at the top of the second field go through the gate and continue ahead, with the hedge now on your left.
  7. 7 Go through the gate at the top left corner of the next field, to the road. Turn left at the road, and follow for 150m before climbing a stile on the right between two gates. Keep alongside the hedge on the right, crossing two stiles at a hedgebank.
  8. 8 Turn right at a gate and stile. Cross the field to a gate, then cross the stile to the left of the house to reach a road. Turn left along the pavement to Lewdown.
