Starting fromAround and About Exmoor

'Whilst Exmoor National Park, the Quantocks Hills and the North Devon Coast are easily accessible and offer fabulous terrain for visitors of all abilities, we would always advise walkers to be fully prepared.  Weather conditions on the moors can quickly change at anytime of the year. We would recommend that any group has a 1:25000 map of the area, a Compass and the knowledge to use it, suitable clothing, plus food & drinks to suit the chosen route. We also advise carrying a torch & whistle, first aid kit and emergency shelter if venturing further afield. Mobile Phone reception is extremely variable across the moors, even on the main road networks.'
