Wednesday Walk Series

June 12

This summer, Moorland Guides has put together a programme of walks that take place every Wednesday, starting from a variety of locations and led by different guides.  The walks are all inspired by the themes of Myths and Legends, Archaeological Explorations or Dartmoor's Water.  The full programme is here:

I am leading two of these walks.  The first is at 2 pm on June 25, starting from the lovely moorland village of Belstone.  Many myths and legends are associated with this area, as well as the Mary/Michael Pilgrim's Way, and we'll visit a number of sites associated with this sacred route, finishing off at the church in Belstone which features an unusual and ancient Ring Cross.

The second walk is on the theme of Dartmoor's Water and starts at 10 am on July 9 at Peek Hill car park (between Princetown and Yelverton).  In less than 6 miles, this walk visits the beautifully built Devonport Leat, an aqueduct, a manmade waterfall, a natural waterfall and a moorland pool.  It also includes a Bronze Age stone row, Bronze Age village, an ancient granite cross and a beautiful clapper bridge.  A lot to see!
