The British Mountaining Council (BMC) has launched a campaign to raise £100,000 to repair various footpaths in national parks around the country. One of the projects is on Dartmoor – the footpath and bridleway that runs from Princetown down to Ditsworthy Warren. The track is well used by walkers and mountain bikers. The section from Nunn’s Cross south is in a particularly poor condition.Here is a video about the project that has been produced by the Dartmoor National Park Authority.
The track is widely used by people training for 10 Tors and I can certainly confirm that parts are very difficult to walk now and as a result most people walk off the track creating erosion in new areas.
I will support this as that will help make the DNPA’s money go further – here is the link if you want to help too.
