Exeter Pilgrimage 2012

Day 12: Bishopswood to Awliscombe

God's Protection: Deliver us from Evil
How to flee from Evil? When to resist Evil?

Another day in the stunning Blackdown hills, and the day we leave Somerset (in which we have been up until this point) and enter Devon (where we will remain until the end). This is another hilly day, but we rewarded with some excellent walking. We pass through many small villages and hamlets on our way to The Sidmouth Arms at Upottery, which sells the locally brewed Otter Beers. After lunch we pass by the famous brewery, before heading to an old hill fort at Dumpdon hill. After the last church stop at Combe Raleigh, only St Cyres' hill stands between us and completing potentially the toughest day of this years walk.
