08/05/2024 | Wednesday Walks Moderate walk

Walk overview

Moorland Guides are delighted to once again, be running walks every Wednesday to members of the public. We’ll meet at Haytor Visitor Centre every Wednesday at 10am for a 3 hour walk in the surrounding area. Depending on the guide and group size, we might visit Haytor Quarry, the old tramway, Smallacombe Rocks, Haytor, Becka Brook and maybe even Hound Tor.

Each week will have a different route and perspective, as each of our guides has a different area of expertise and experience of the moors.

This week, our walk will be run by Sue Perry. Sue has always been attracted to the great outdoors and is a part time English teacher. Some years ago, as part of the military, she took part in expeditions to Snowdonia, the Brecon Beacons and Popocatepetl, Mexico; but more recently she has spent time on Dartmoor with DofE and Ten Tors through schools. Since she moved to Devon in 2016 she has rambled all over Dartmoor and has taken the opportunity to renew her outdoor leadership qualifications by completing her HML. A perfect day on the moor for Sue would probably involve a Bronze Age site and a dip in a Moorland stream.

Payment can be paid via bank transfer or by clicking this stripe link: https://buy.stripe.com/28oaIddgKd54eiYfYY. Please note these walks require a minimum of 5 walkers and we reserve the right to cancel the walk if we haven’t met the required numbers by midday on the day before. In this event, we will offer to transfer your booking to another week or refund you.
