A varied, non-taxing walk that visits a 16th-century leat, a Victorian reservoir and the burial place of the three Great White Rajahs of Sarawak! Coupled with that are constantly changing views, from lofty tors around Burrator to rolling fields and wooded valleys. Some paths will be muddy in winter.
