We are delighted to announce that the DPA has published a book of Short Walks on Dartmoor.

Many members have enjoyed the meticulously researched short walks programme run by our trustee Keith Ryan.  As a result he has compiled nine of his favourite walks into a book for members and other Dartmoor lovers to follow on their own.

Each walk should take approximately two hours and cover about three miles – perfect for a morning or afternoon.

They do not give map or GPS references, but rely on observing features as the walk progresses making them easy to follow. Keith has included lots of his own photography to illustrate the features of interest on each walk as well as explaining about them in the accompanying text. There is a map with the route clearly marked for each walk as well. Not only are they  enjoyable walks, but Keith’s research will add so much to your understanding of the landscape of Dartmoor.

The book is spiral bound to lie flat at the chosen page which saves having to keep finding your place as you follow the walk.

The front and back cover are here

Price: £12.00 including postage or  for collection from Princetown only £10.00.
