Description

Come and blow the cobwebs away with two experienced guides Colin and Heather. They are gonna make you walk miles and miles!! Only kidding

We (WE? I didn't see that coming) will walk across the open moors along the Meavy Valley passing tinners' remains and blowing houses as well as prehistoric stone rows up to Hart Tor on our way to lunch. There are some lovely pubs and cafes in the village where Dartmoor Prison is located or you can bring a picnic. If you are thinking of stopping in a pub might want to pre-book in advance. After lunch our return journey will take us along the former tramway and railway line with far reaching views in fine weather west towards Cornwall, returning to our cars for about 3.30/4pm.

The walk is approximately 6 miles, it is a fairly easy terrain with only one river to cross but there is a narrow bridge for those of you who don't want to venture in so with that in mind be lovely to bring the young people along too and really make a day out.

We will meet in the car park on the B3212 road from Yelverton to Princetown. From Yelverton travel towards Princetown and up onto the moors over the cattlegrid. Carry on and over the brow of the hill and when you go down the long slope on the way to Princetown the two car parks are on the left hand side. We meet in the first one on the left Grid Ref SX 561 708

We will postpone or delay the event to suit most people but the walk will go ahead if the weather is inclement and that Colin, your guide, is able to provide an alternative to avoid anyone having a miserable time. Having a miserable day with your guides isn't possible believe me they are great people.

So walking boots at the ready and I'll see you there.

£1 from every ticket is in aid of the British Heart Foundation
