An organised trek on Dartmoor this month may be a very good time to don fleeces
to deal with the cold weather.
The event takes place on Sheepstor this Sunday (December 5th), beginning at 13:00 GMT and lasting three hours, by which time the light will be fading.
Starting at Norsworthy Bridge, the route heads through the grounds of the arboretum before ascending through woodland to the open moor and finally on to Sheepstor, where panoramic views may be enjoyed.
The right clothing may be vital to stay warm on the exposed upland as the trek takes in the high point, before descending past a rabbit warrant and maiden Tor before passing back through the woods to the starting point.
Dartmoor visitors may also want to wrap up even warmer when visiting the highest point in the national park, the High Willhays-Yes Tor ridge.
This is the only part of southern England over 2,000 ft above sea level.
