Hoar Oak Valley

I spent today’s exercise back up on the moor, continuing my search for the sources of the tributaries of the East Lyn, this time to the source of the Hoar Oak up on the Chains. My circular walk from Exe Head to Furzehill via Pinkery Pond & back up the Hoar Oak also took in the sources of the Exe & the West Lyn. It’s amazing how close the Exe & Hoar Oak sources are – only about 80m with one draining north in to the Bristol Channel & the other south in to the English Channel. I was also surprised how much otter spraint I saw high up on the moor – they must use the footpaths to travel between the different rivers.
