Dartmoor Discovery Walking group
Group Led by Mervyn Stewart
Email  mervynstewart795@gmail.com

The group meets in morning of the fourth Thursday of each month.  Walks are typically 31/2 to 5 miles and take between 21/2 and 3 hours.

Our mission is to search out and investigate the physical remains of human history and activity plus other interesting places across Dartmoor, and sometimes further afield.  In so doing we enjoy walking in the fresh air, learning about the local history and interacting socially with other group members.

Walkers meet at the walk start point on Dartmoor or, if they wish to car share, at
Ivybridge Park & Ride.  Walks commence at the start point at 10.00am.

Walkers will require outdoor clothing and walking boots or shoes suitable for the time of year and waterproof when necessary.
