We’re really lucky here; I could walk out the front door and ten minutes later, would be walking along the lanes to find somewhere to kip for the night in a quiet field somewhere.
I could head to the coast, just five miles distant; waking up with a sea view is always refreshing.
However, despite these attractions, the place I have chosen is Dartmoor, not ten miles distant.
Every weekday evening, when I return from work, I can see the hills on the horizon as I turn into the village.
I did fancy going to the northern part of the moor, as this is wilder, but the day and night firing is happening in the Merrivale range on the Friday and I am not too sure when they stop, so I will park up at Postrbidge and walk North keeping to the East of the range.
