Dartmoor to offer War Horse walks
Bookmark and Share
Dartmoor National Park Authority is offering three themed walks in the national park to enable walkers coming with their walking boots and backpacks to experience for themselves the landscape featured in the film War Horse.

On January 21st there will be a trek around the Gutter Tor area, lasting for two and a half hours, while on February 19th there will be a three hour trek.

And on March 17th there will be a shorter walk aimed at children.

These walks also include a visit to the High Moorland Visitor Centre and a chance to find out more about what the area was like in the first world war.

Producer of the film Steven Speilberg said of Dartmoor: "There's no place like it in the world…..it's pretty extraordinary country."

Filming took place in locations around the national park such as Haytor, Ringmoor Down and the area around Combestone Tor.

Dartmoor's association with all things equine includes its famous ponies and the winning picture in last year's Capturing Dartmoor competition to mark the 60th anniversary of the national park's designation featured four of the creatures huddled together on a frosty morning.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801261149-ADNFCR
