This walk takes you to a trip to follow the Abbey Brook up into the gorge at stream level, and then head over in the Wet Stones direction. A nice secluded walk with great views and a waterfall. The quickest exit from the gorge is up the slope where the northern rock face ends, watch it if the grass and rock are wet though. Otherwise just backtrack down and up the gentler slopes. Over to High Stones, dropped off the edge to get some views from below for a change, and watch the curlews (note that this route is actually pretty tough on the ankles), back onto the edge and return by Wilfrey Nield, and back down Row Top.
