This book describes in an easy to follow narrative ten walks found throughout
Exmoor National Park.
Suitable for all ages they will give hours of pleasure and
enjoyment. A selection of photographs, show some of the landscape that the walks
pass through and small snippets of information are highlighted in box form to
inspire research and exploration.
The walks start from some of Exmoor’s prettiest
villages and hamlets. A brief description of these is given at the beginning of each
walk. Historical and archaeological sites are mentioned as well as lora and fauna
that might be seen.
This small book is a great accessory and should be put in a pocket
or a rucksack on each visit to Exmoor.
The walks which vary from 4 to 9 miles in length are designed to suit the needs of
families, groups of friends or individuals looking for a gentle stroll or a longer walk.
The ten walks are centred on Horner, Exford, Hunter’s Inn, Dulverton, Withypool,
Valley of Rocks, Dunster, Winsford, Simonsbath, and Brendon village.
Leaving Kent and moving to Devon brought the authors in
contact with Exmoor where they quickly fell under its spell
like many before. As their knowledge of Exmoor grew, so did
a large collection of photographic slides. These slides have
been used to promote Exmoor with illustrated talks during
the forty ive years they have been lucky enough to walk the national park. During that time
they were also volunteer guides for the Exmoor National Park Authority for over a decade. This
gave them great satisfaction and enjoyment while at the same time making many friends. Now
in their retirement years they are still leading guided walks with enthusiasm.
