Remembering on Dartmoor
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to go walking may wish to take a trek with a sense of occasion on Dartmoor next month.

November 13th is Remembrance Sunday and while many could go to commemorate the fallen at a local service in a town square or church, walkers in the national park have an option of a trek that has been organised by national park rangers.

Covering a route including Grimspound, Hameldown and Chalacombe, the walk takes in a moorland war memorial near the King's Oven, a spot named after an old smelting house in the former royal forest.

The national park site has advised that people need to come well equipped, so walking boots, waterproofs and good walking trousers may all be ideal for a hike on high ground in autumn.

Starting at 10:00 GMT, the walk lasts for five hours.

Other guided walks people can undertake to mark Remembrance Sunday will include an exploration of the Kinder plateau in the Peak District, which includes a number of crashed wartime aircraft wrecks.
