Welcome to the Moors

Covering 368 square miles, Dartmoor is a place of beauty, mystery and diverse ecology. As well as still being home to thousands of people, it also contains ancient remains of settlements reaching back to prehistoric times. With a national park as large as Dartmoor with so much to learn and enjoy, you may prefer, as many visitors do, to walk the moors in the company of a knowledgeable guide who can explain the moorland in as much detail as you want. Our expert guides run a vast range of activities all across the moors and beyond. Join us and find out why the only way to really discover the real Dartmoor is to join the Moorland Guides on one of our walks.

Dewerstone Circular

Starting at Shaugh Bridge, we have a brief stretch on the lane and then walk up to join the Drake’s Trail at Shaugh Halt from where we walk along the old railway line and through a (drippy) tunnel. Soon after we turn off and join a path that runs through lovely woodland in the Meavy valley, passing . . . through an old quarry. Further on we find ourselves above the River Plym and climb up to Dewerstone Tor with magnificent views. We walk over Wigford Down to Cadover Bridge and then return on the other side of the Plym, through more woodland and the remains of the china clay works.
