Those who like to go walking on long distance paths have been invited to take part in a survey about the development of the Dartmoor Way.

Currently stretching around 100 miles, the route may already appeal to many people heading to Devon with walking boots and Ordnance Survey Maps, but enterprise body Devon Renaissance is quizzing people about future enhancements.

The survey asks about potential route changes including incorporating the highest point of the moor, making the route a circular one, providing bike maintenance facilities for those cycling the route and ensuring the path has good transport links.

Matt Parkins of Devon Renaissance commented: "We are hoping that many different types of people will contact us with their views."

The highest point on the moor is High Willhays, which at 2,039 ft is also the loftiest place in England.

Its inclusion may fit with the stated aim of the project to "increase consumer take up of local products and accommodation provision", with Okehampton's shops, bed and breakfast accommodation and youth hostels nearby.
