AboutWalk with Dartmoor's Daughter through an ancient ceremonial landscape on Dartmoor. The eight stone circles on North East Dartmoor form an approximate arc. What is the purpose of the stone circles, and this particular formation in the landscape? Are the circles connected to each other? Was it deliberate architecture that five rivers rise in the centre of the arc as well as the Whitehorse Hill cist? Is there a full circle of stone circles across the north moor perhaps?
Taking an archaeological as well as phenomenological approach, we will journey together through this wild and beautiful landscape asking questions of the ancestors, stones, and land along the way.
ROUTE: Pace, weather, and group interest dependent, this will either be a circular 13 mile walk taking in Quintin Man's Cairn, Whitehorse Hill, Hangingstone Hill, and Wild Tor as well as the eight stone circles. Or, we will start at Fernworthy, walk through the circles, and then finish at Creaber sharing taxis back to our start point for a 10 miles walk (taxis will be organised by Dartmoor's Daughter).
£15 per adult. Group size limited so pre-booking essential. https://www.dartmoorsdaughter.com/walks-events/2017/10/15/sacred-crescent-walk
