DAY 15: South Molton to Exford (13.67m)

After the drinks the night before I'm off to a slow start with a headache. Luckily my usual hangover cure is a long walk so soon I am feeling pretty good as I walk footpaths and roads to take me up onto Exmoor.

On the way I pass Balls Cross and then go over the Devon/Somerset border onto proper moor land where I spot some Exmoor ponies.

After crossing the River Barle at the medieval Landacre Bridge, a short climb and some more country lanes, takes me into the pretty village of Exford for the night.
