  1. Large red words on the OS Map spell out a warning to hikers and tourists alike: Danger Area restricted access. I had this notion that the northern landscape of Dartmoor was a fenced off landscape, uninviting to hikers. Littered with UXBs and danger!

  3. My OS Map showed a car park at Two Bridges, located at the edge of a small disused quarry. The weather was typical Dartmoor, cloud and the 50/50 chance of rain, sunshine, drizzle, blue sky, cloud. You’ll get used to it. Bring your coat.

  8. Add Carving a Trail to your Itinerary

    Newton Abbot

    Dartmoor walks don’t have to involve donning a huge rucksack and striding out onto the granite plateau, reliant on your navigation skills. Particularly on the eastern and southern sides – where rivers have cut deeply into softer slates and shales –...

  9. The recent and overdue induction of former poet laureate, Ted Hughes’, into Westminster Abbey’s Poet’s Corner, was my inspiration for a classic walk into northern Dartmoor’s brooding centre.

  10. Add An Autumn Stomp to your Itinerary

    Yelverton

    A varied, non-taxing walk that visits a 16th-century leat, a Victorian reservoir and the burial place of the three Great White Rajahs of Sarawak! Coupled with that are constantly changing views, from lofty tors around Burrator.

  14. Add Teign & Turrets Walk to your Itinerary

    Newton Abbot

    The Teign is Dartmoor’s most iconic river. From a bleak moorland spring, it meanders some 50km to the South Devon coast at Teignmouth. This four-hour walk in its upper valley takes in wonderous views and the glorious vision of a certain Mr. Drewe

  20. Do you have a favourite wild place? Where the view stirs the imagination or where the squeaks, rustles and smells give you hints about what’s going on around you? Maybe the atmosphere relaxes your mind. These places might draw you back again and...
