Exmoor and Bodmin Moor Videos

Sometimes the lads need a bit of break from hiking on Dartmoor, but cannot be bothered to travel so far as the mountains, and so, on days such as these, they like to turn to a day of hiking on the other local moors; Devon and Somerset's Exmoor and Bodmin Moor in Cornwall.

 

And this playlist is where you can find those rare adventures. You can watch the video by clicking the image or the title. 

1. DUNKERY BEACON, EXMOOR

 

One last hike before Christmas 2017, and the boys have ventured somewhere different - Exmoor in fact, and a trip to the highest point of this quaint National Park, Dunkery Beacon

 

From the carpark near Dunkery Bridge, the pair head off down into the woodland of Mansley Combe, where they then navigate their way up Dunkery Hill, stopping to take in the Joany and Robin How Cairnes before finally reaching their destination, the high point of Dunkery Beacon.

 

A different pace of adventure with some great banter and some horrendous weather to boot.

Typical Summit or Nothing moments - the lads walking completely off route whilst in deep conversation and Trev confesses that editing Nath's dialogue is a laborious task.

2. BROWN WILLY, BODMIN MOOR

 

For their first outing into Cornwall's Bodmin Moor, it had to be a hike up to the county's highest point, the infamous Brown Willy.

 

Nath, Trev and Moby first go hiking up Showery Tor, and then over to the impressive Rough Tor (via Llittle Rough Tor) where Trev has a Bodmin Legend to share (watch for the glaringly obvious -and obviously deliberate ;-)  mistake).

 

Some dodgy navigation sees them cross some settlements and field systems and head on over to Garrow Tor. And to top the day off, some even dodgier navigation through private land the pair finally make it to Brownwilly via Brown willy Downs.

3. KING ARTHURS HALL, BODMIN MOOR

 

A day hike onto Bodmin Moor once again, and this time its one taken from County Walking Magazine that takes in the legendary King Arthur's Hall

Parking just beside the Stannon China and Clay Works, the route leads onto Bodmin Moor via Dinnever Hill, and takes in a couple of stone circles on the way. Rough Tor and Brown Willy can be seen on this walk. 

 

Then the lads head into St Brewards CP where they locate the area known as King Arthurs Hall just beyond King Arthurs Downs. It's not sure what exactly this place was, but some believe it could possibly have been a late Neolithic or early bronze age ceremonial site.

 

From here its west across the moor through Candra and over to Treswallock Downs where the highest point of the day is located, Alex Tor

Interesting fact - One of the rare videos to include some of the lads drone footage.
