  3. 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.

  4. If you would like to wander in the woodland, meander in the meadow, spot dragonflies, count the different birds you can hear and listen to the rippling Narrator Brook, then put an hour aside for a wildlife encounter in the Burrator Arboretum.

  11. 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!

  12. Add Trenchford and Tottiford reservoirs to your Itinerary

  14. 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.

    This is easy walk of 3 miles over moorland takes in two tors, an ancient cross and involves a little stream jumping.
