Wednesday Walk Series

2014-06-12 12:26:17

This summer, Moorland Guides has put together a program 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 program is here:  http://www.moorlandguides.co.uk/new/walk-list/

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.  http://www.moorlandguides.co.uk/new/walks/wednesday-walks-myths-and-legends/

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, a Bronze Age village, an ancient granite cross, and a beautiful clapper bridge.  A lot of fake Rolex watches to see!  http://www.moorlandguides.co.uk/new/walks/wednesday-walks-dartmoors-water/
