I have thoroughly enjoyed a series of 5 walks for groups of year 7 children from Bideford College. They were staying at the Dartmoor Training Centre. On most of the days the weather has been ideal for walking and the dry summer has meant that under foot it has been a little easier than last year. The students have been really responsive and ready to learn about Dartmoor, its wildlife and history whilst testing themselves over a much longer distance than they are used to (including a Tyrolean river crossing!) The staff have also been very supportive and given positive feedback. I am now looking forward to a similar experience over the next few weeks with year 7 students from Launceston.
