Was ihr unternehmen werdet

Active, personal, informative landscape interpretation. Allowing you full access to the millennia of human history under your feet. Live the landscape don't just see it! The granite which forms this area is approx 1000 Sq Km, bending the Earth's crust with its massive weight so that even gravity is slightly different here! Today's, mostly agricultural, National Park was once a hive of industry with granite, iron, tin and lead being mined here. The remains of these industries are there for those who know what to look for. London Bridge, now in Arizona, came from these quarries as well as many other famous London buildings. Gunpowder was also manufactured up here out of harms way. The Dartmoor men had no access to steel so they built their railway out of the most plentiful local material, granite! We will see their handiwork and marvel at their ingenuity. Living in the quarries and joined by their wives and families in the finer weather they were a tough lot. Human habitation stretches back to at least 40'000 years ago and the earliest NW European Human jawbone, post Neanderthal, was discovered here in a cave which, in modern times, is coastal. The moor can be seen as barren and with the exception of the livestock and wild ponies it is sparsely inhabited but you will leave this magical place knowing why, where, how and what it meant to our ancestors and more importantly to you!

I've been leading guests on these spectacular moors for 11 years and this is where I call home. I also lead in The Mediterranean countries, their islands, Central America, Australia, NZ, Africa etc and I tell you this to let you know that these Dartmoor and Exmoor Parks compare extremely favourably with any world locations and are much safer than most. We will set off on a structured hike which will introduce you, gently, to the area and its history. I have to be led by your physical fitness levels, and interests, so lengths may vary but will typically be around 8Km or 5 miles. I'm happy to do less distance if you wish but it really requires these sort of distances to properly acquaint you with the area and its extensive history. I want to take you under the beautiful topography and explain why people have lived here for many millennia.

Wo ihr sein werdet

We will visit the area of Hay Tor on Dartmoor, other areas are available, because it is reached quickly and holds all the secrets of early human life on the moor, its amazing granite make up, the hardships of taming the landscape and the conquest of its natural riches. The rapidly changing skies, atmospheric mists and the sharp edged granite features are the same as those our ancestors saw and conquered before the moor was returned to nature.
