Those thinking of buying winter jackets could find they are perfect for an upcoming walk planned by rangers at the Dartmoor National Park Authority.

On Saturday, November 13th a walk will take place entitled The Eastern Ten Tors, which will explore a series of the famous granite outcrops for which the national park is famous.

This includes Hay Tor, one of the most famous of them all, which the authority describes as "iconic".

Beginning at 10:30 GMT at the lower Hay Tor car park, the walk lasts four hours and those taking part may wish to consider ensuring they have good walking boots and a walking pole.

Last month, the national park authority revealed work had been completed on a five-year programme of examining ancient cairns in the national park - some dating back to the Bronze Age - and repairing them when necessary.

Work on 49 cairns ended when the final repairs were carried out on Cawsand Beacon, with the authority being partnered in this enterprise by the Dartmoor Preservation Association and English Heritage.
