A short and easy dog walk to several ponds full of insects - a photographer's dream!

Walk 2
Aylesbeare Common Long (3.1 miles)

This is a very popular walk through two commons, Harpford & Aylesbeare.

During the winter , wellies are recommended as the public footpath through the woods follows a stream and can be quite muddy.

Please note the busy A3052 has to be crossed twice.
