- Date: 16 June 2019
- Time: 10am - 4pm
- Address: Challacombe Farm, Postbridge PL20 6TD
- Grid ref: SX693 794
Take a walk around the hay meadows which Naomi Oakley & Mark Owen are restoring with green hay, and the wet, rhos pastures which should have Marsh Fritillary butterflies flying if the weather is good. There will also have a selection of lovely Icelandic and Shetland lambs for people to come and meet and watch playing.
Parking: In signposted flat field with shade.
Other notes: The event is free and there is a self guided marked walk of about 1 kilometre. Visitors with mobility issues or small children are welcome to park very close to the meadows to reduce the distance.
Everyone is very welcome, there is a loo, free tea and coffee, and nice dogs on leads can come too. Bring a picnic and stay longer, perhaps going for a longer walk, bird watching or just enjoying being in nature. See https://www.dartmoorfarm.com/ or Facebook for more about the farm.
