Ladies Day on Dartmoor
Bookmark and Share
A series of ladies-only walks are being offered by the Dartmoor National Park Authority.

Held on January 19th, Walks for Women will be a chance to don women's outdoors clothing and women's walking boots to take part in a three-hour hike at Pork Hill.

Led by local guide Liz Miall, the event starts at 11:00 GMT and is one of numerous events for walkers being put on by the authority.

Another is the beginner's guide to map and compass, being held on January 23rd - which starts at 10:15 GMT at Princetown and lasts for six hours - during which navigation skills will be taught, both in the classroom and out on the hills.

Those wanting to buy Ordnanace Survey maps to use these skills can find them at their nearest Go Outdoors shop.

Dartmoor was the focus of early Ordnance Survey mapping as these were created to help English forces in the event of the French invading the south of England after the revolution.

One legacy of this is that it is a southern location - Newlyn in Cornwall - where height above sea level is measured, this being based on the mean of the tides.
