Det skal I lave

Active, personal, informative landscape interpretation. Allowing you full access to the millennia of human history under your feet. Live the landscape don't just see it! The granite which forms this area is approx 1000 Sq Km, bending the Earth's crust with its massive weight so that even gravity is slightly different here! Today's, mostly agricultural, National Park was once a hive of industry with granite, iron, tin and lead being mined here. The remains of these industries are there for those who know what to look for. London Bridge, now in Arizona, came from these quarries as well as many other famous London buildings. Gunpowder was also manufactured up here out of harms way. The Dartmoor men had no access to steel so they built their railway out of the most plentiful local material, granite! We will see their handiwork and marvel at their ingenuity. Living in the quarries and joined by their wives and families in the finer weather they were a tough lot. Human habitation stretches back to at least 40'000 years ago and the earliest NW European Human jawbone, post Neanderthal, was discovered here in a cave which, in modern times, is coastal. The moor can be seen as barren and with the exception of the livestock and wild ponies it is sparsely inhabited but you will leave this magical place knowing why, where, how and what it meant to our ancestors and more importantly to you!

I've been leading guests on these spectacular moors for 11 years and this is where I call home. I also lead in The Mediterranean countries, their islands, Central America, Australia, NZ, Africa etc and I tell you this to let you know that these Dartmoor and Exmoor Parks compare extremely favourably with any world locations and are much safer than most. We will set off on a structured hike which will introduce you, gently, to the area and its history. I have to be led by your physical fitness levels, and interests, so lengths may vary but will typically be around 8Km or 5 miles. I'm happy to do less distance if you wish but it really requires these sort of distances to properly acquaint you with the area and its extensive history. I want to take you under the beautiful topography and explain why people have lived here for many millennia.

Her skal du være

We will visit the area of Hay Tor on Dartmoor, other areas are available, because it is reached quickly and holds all the secrets of early human life on the moor, its amazing granite make up, the hardships of taming the landscape and the conquest of its natural riches. The rapidly changing skies, atmospheric mists and the sharp edged granite features are the same as those our ancestors saw and conquered before the moor was returned to nature.

David had a great knowledge about the area regarding its history, geology and society. As we had never been in the area, we learned a great lot on that walk which we would never have been able to without David. He was also a great guide, making sure that everybody stayed safe and adjusted his walking speed so that everybody was able to keep up with him. All in all, we had a great experience.

Totally fantastic experience with one of the most knowledgable and enthusiastic guides we have ever had . Davy was encyclopaedic with his knowledge and our group of 7 spent the most wonderful morning finding out about Dartmoor abs ending ending with the beautiful Haytor quarry with its beautiful setting and wonderful display of water lilies. Really highly recommended!

A fantastic tour! David is as entertaining as he is knowledgeable not just about the area and geological make up but about many other subjects too. It was interesting, informative and a wonderful introduction to this beautiful part of the world. Thoroughly recommended

Davey is fully safety conscious and is happy to adapt the hike to the fitness and interests of the group. He is knowledgeable about the history, geology and the economic and cultural contributions made by Dartmoor’s granite and mineral resources to the south west and to Britain…all interspersed with local folklore and his own experiences drawn from his time living and working across the globe. A great morning in the capable hands of an engaging professional. Thanks.
