Event Details

An exciting opportunity to come along on an exploratory and immersive walk up on the peaty wetland or mire (wear waterproofs, wellies or sturdy walking boots.). Experience new ways of looking at our landscapes, the energy and carbon they hold, the water they manage, the history and heritage stories they tell.

The route is a variable stony track up on top of the moor, the top of the moor has rocks and mossy lumps and bumps. If you have questions about this, email us hello@artandenergy.org

Find out about the role of the Dartmoor wetlands with the Headwaters Project and commoners who farm the moor, and others who manage land for all our futures.

Help restore the moor and join in with a ceremonial planting of local bio-original grown sphagnum in local wool based peat protectors, this work is part of our How to Bury the Giant In Moss and Moor project.

Make some art on the moor and share it on-line as part of the BurytheGiant moss art challenge

Bring along a picnic and eat it at the top of the moor with views far and wide to Plymouth, South Hams and the sea beyond.

You could catch the train to Ivybridge and make it a low carbon, car free , and relaxed day out! Alternatively there’s bike parking and free parking for cars.
