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.

It was this that started his fondness for Dartmoor as his expeditions were done here. After completing gold Ian went on to become an assessor for the D of E expeditions in 1971. He started teaching in a primary school near Heathrow and moved to Devon to be near Dartmoor in 1976. It wasn’t long before he joined the Rescue Group and the DNP guides – in 1978. He is now semi-retired, enjoying some supply teaching, running his own living history business for schools and guiding. His particular interests are archaeology of all types and legends, but his walks always include flora, fauna and geology- anything to do with the moor.
