I hope you can help me.
I took my family from Manchester to holiday in South Devon in the early 1990s. We were introduced to letterboxing and eventually became members of the 100 Club---number 8309. After many years away from the area, my son and grandchildren are returning in August to a campsite between Totnes and Newton Abbot. They would like to try a couple of charity walks that are accessible from that area. The grandchildren are relatively young 8+11 so will not be looking for great distances. Many of the walks on your website seem to be based in the North. Can you help to direct me to some further south please? Thanks.
Roger Berry.
