Somerset, North Devon Run

Saturday 18th May 2019. I have organised this drive for a Facebook group I am in, but thought there maybe some of you on here that are not on FB. Here's the route for the Somerset, North Devon Run on 18th May. Approx. 92 miles, 4 hours. (Bring a packed lunch!) Meet at 10am at Old Well Garden Centre, 500 yards from M5 Junction 27, towards Wellington. (They sell lovely cakes).
Depart from here at 10.30, heading back towards Tiverton ,then up the A396 (The Exe Valley) to Dunster. Across then to Blue Anchor for 1st stop.Then following the A39 across to Lynmouth, (Via Porlock Hill) and then south across Exmoor to finish at The Anchor Inn, Exebridge.
