Ceremonial site walk at Drizzlecombe, Dartmoor's Daughter
Join us for a guided walk through an ancient and ritual Dartmoor landscape.
Dartmoor has the largest concentrations of stone rows in Britain as well as 16 stone circles, many standing stones, and burial chambers. Led by Dartmoor’s Daughter, Emma Cunis, walkers will journey together (sometimes in silence and sometimes sharing experiences) through Drizzlecombe ceremonial complex. The best preserved of Dartmoor’s prehistoric ceremonial sites, it includes stone rows, standing stones, the ‘Giant’s Basin’ cairn as well as barrows, cists, and hut circles.
The route will be approx. 3 miles long. Level: Moderate.
Participants must be comfortable walking at a good pace in open and hilly moorland. Appropriate footwear and waterproofs essential. Feel free to bring a picnic lunch to have at the end of the walk.
Transport will be provided.
