Moretonhampstead to Butterdon Valley, Moretonhampstead, Dartmoor National Park

If you look at the Ordnance Survey Explorer OL28 'Dartmoor' map, you'll see a path marked as a broken green line running north of Moretonhampstead to Butterdon Down. On older Ordnance Survey maps, this is marked as part of the Dartmoor Way Walking Route. In Spring, when the wild flowers are out, the valley is a beautiful place. Steep valley walls are carpeted with buttercups and there are patches of bluebells and woodlands. So, if you're exploring the Moretonhampstead area, this is a good Spring walk.
