Riddon ridge - Dartmoor
Riddon ridge - Dartmoor
The start of the track over Riddon ridge. Riddon is a derivative of Red Down owing to its colourful summer coating of heather. We won't see much of that today. The ridge has quite a few prehistoric remains - hut settlements, reaves and cairns. It also has some medieval field enclosures.
