Dartmoor

2011: added Hexworthy and Ugborough Moor as PAD; 2012 some moor arriving please visit again

2013: Grimspound to Ventford reservoir (not a walk) and arrival of the coos

A walk from Willsworthy to the upper Tavy. One goes onto Dartmoor for its vast stretches of open landscape; it isn't going to win any competitions for pretty postcards. However in the folds of the hills are several beautiful rivers, some of the most refreshing swimming in the UK. As its a good hour's walk from nearest road, it doesn't get too crowded.

NB walks on Dartmoor are often NOT along a defined track and must not be attempted without compass and proper experience.
