Equipment & Clothing
All maps and compasses are provided but if you wish to bring your own that is fine too. I would encourage you to dress appropriately for the weather conditions and carry/ wear waterproofs, as we will not be moving too fast. Trail shoes are a must, and a small bumbag/ 5 litre rucksack is advisable for the usual stuff like fluids or snacks.
Dartmoor is renowned for its exposed moorland and very changeable weather, from biblical storms to baking hot heat waves. You have been warned!
