New Clues: A walk of snipe

Here are my Summer Letterbox clues,  This is a series of Letterboxes around Woodcock Hill on Dartmoor's North West corner.  Snipe are any one of 25 wading birds, including Dartmoor residents, the curlew and woodcock.  A 'walk' is their collective noun, and this series recognises the birds and the long distance paths that cross the Moor.  The route is about 7 miles in length beginning and ending at Prewley Water Works.  Of course, your route can be extended, or walked in different sections.  Please, please use common sense as you walk around between 4 and 6.  The dry season does not make the terrain any easier!  The pools around Rattlebrook Head and Lyd Head are deep, but can be very easily circumnavigated.  You have been warned!
