Dartmoor Rivers - 10 Leisure Walks

Dartmoor Rivers - 10 Leisure Walks

by: John Earle
The great granite dome of Dartmoor is like the hub of a wheel and the many streams and rivers that run off it in all directions are like the spokes. Water is everywhere on Dartmoor, even in times of drought. Soon the streams gather into rivers flowing down to the English Channel or, a few, north to the Bristol Channel. The walks do not follow the river banks, but take in the river and then wander away to explore some of the fascinating local area.

Most of the walks in this guide are circular and begin at a car park or safe parking location with the grid reference provided. Public transport options are given where available. The walks are graded for difficulty and distance and a short description of the terrain are also provided. Clear route directions are provided together with simple sketch maps.

One of the features that make the 'Boot Up' series of guides so attractive is the emphasis on good landscape photography and the book is well illustrated throughout with colour photographs. The handy size also means it will slip easily into your pocket, protected by the tough cover.

The walk locations are:
West Okement River from Meldon Reservoir - 7.5 miles
River Taw and Belstone - 4 or 5 miles
River Teign from Castle Drogo - 5.5 miles
