• Winter on Dartmoor

25/2 Winter on Dartmoor

The bleak high moors take on a life of their own in Winter. On a Winter in Dartmoor tour you will see just how spectacular this ancient landscape can be and perhaps imagine what it would be like living here 100's of years ago!


Winter on Dartmoor – enjoy a winter walk through a fascinating and beautiful corner of the moor

This is a deeply varied corner of Dartmoor and our route will take us through a variety of landscapes and interesting historical sites. We`ll discover lots of evidence still visible from Dartmoor’s industrial past before entering medieval field systems and their settlements. As we continue, we`ll climb steeply to look at amazing Bronze Age archaeology before continuing to a beautiful vantage point beyond where the landscape reveals itself impressively.
