Car access to Hennock is via narrow lanes. However, this delightful walk starts in Bovey Tracy and steadily climbs up to Hennock, so it makes an ideal pub walk.

Though the route follows fairly long stretches of quiet lanes, the views of the Valley and Dartmoor are stunning.

After Hennock, you follow a public foot path through Great Rock Copse, known for its Victorian iron mines - here they also extracted a mineral used by the Royal Navy to make their battleships rust proof.

The paths are well defined and the rich fauna, particularly in early summer, is a treat to behold.

Note: There are some steady climbs and the descents , especially at the end , can be quite steep.
