Organiser: Andy Dobson
Venue:Campsite on Dartmoor TBC
Dartmoor is one of the last wildernesses in England. It is a national park occupying some 368 square miles (954 sq km) of hills, many of which are topped by spectacular granite outcrops called ‘tors’. At its lowest point Dartmoor touches 325 feet (100m) and at its highest (High Willhays) 2,018 feet (621m). The valleys between the hills carry streams and rivers that can rise very swiftly following rain, and there are many bogs that can easily trap the unwary walker. What a great place to explore, practice navigation, overnight camping and self reliance!
Activities – Many and varied activies are available on Dartmoor. I intend to organise 2 days of walking which follow the format of the Ten Tors Competition, visiting 10 Tors over 2 days. I don’t intend to use the age group criteria as those of us over 45 would need to complete 734 miles!
