A North Pennine Ramble

For a while I could almost have thought I was back on northern Dartmoor in the old days when, apart from the ancient tracks, there were fewer paths.

Help Fight for Dartmoor

I spent nine most interesting years (1996-2005) as chief executive of the Dartmoor Preservation Association at a time when Dartmoor was Britain’s most threatened National Park.

The occasion marked an important stage along the pathways into roaming and vagabondage.Continue reading “Running Away to Walk”

A Search for Pixies Holt

Something to seek out once the restrictions are lifted. In my talks with Dartmoor walkers I’m always surprised at how few have ever been to Pixies Holt.  Many confused it with the education adventure centre on the hill out of Dartmeet, which bore the same name and in truth the legendary lair of the littleContinue reading “A Search for Pixies Holt”

When out walking a new route, I often think about how, when I have completed the walk, I should look up and find out more information about some of the places I have seen. This does not actually happen as often as it should. Hopefully, this site will go some way to redressing this.
