Leader: Dr Stephan Harrison.
Meet below Prewley Waterworks, Sourton (SX 546910) – accessed off A386 1km north of Sourton village.

Following Stephan Harrison’s intriguing and thought-provoking lecture at Bovey Tracey in November, he has kindly agreed to take us to some key locations to see the evidence on which the arguments for the glaciation of Dartmoor are based.
We shall be visiting spectacular scenery on north-west Dartmoor, including the magnificent West Okement valley. It will be rough moorland walking in exposed locations, so bring suitable weatherproof clothing and footwear. Please also bring a picnic tea for when we pause on a balmy June afternoon!
Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times.
£1.00 per person donation on the day. Please book by Friday 31st May.
