Guided walk - Doone Country - Heroes, Heroines, Hunter-gatherers and hermits.
Join Rob Wilson-North for a walk over rough moorland to Badgworthy in the footsteps of author RD Blackmore (this being the 150th year since the publication of Lorna Doone). We will also be on the trails of hermits and hunter gatherers. This is an exploration of one of Exmoor’s most iconic places.
It is a longish walk over moorland, so please come prepared with suitable footwear and clothing for uneven ground and unreliable weather.. Dogs on leads. Bring a packed lunch/refreshments.
