Lundy Island

Lundy lies off the coast of North Devon, where the Atlantic ocean meets the Bristol Channel with nothing between it and America, a granite outcrop, three and a half miles long and half a mile wide. In the hubbub of the modern world it is a place apart, peaceful and unspoilt.

Moors and Tors

Walking for health and happiness on Dartmoor in all weathers and over all terrains with me, Liz Miall, an enthusiastic local guide.
I am fully qualified and experienced, insured and first aid trained. Member of the British Mountaineering Council and Mountain Training Association. I have lived on and loved Dartmoor since childhood when I would nag my long-suffering father to take me out on the moor so we could “explore up a river”. These walks are my spirit and my strength; through them I never stop exploring.

North Hall Manor

The site of North Hall known as “Widecombe’s deserted Medieval Manor” lies just to the north of the village green, nestling under the gaze of Widecombe’s magnificent Church Tower. Sadly all that remains now of this once imposing site is the over grown Moat and Apple Pound surrounded by a dilapidated mix of farm buildings ranging from 1940’s milking parlour with dairy alongside livestock buildings.
