The Ten Tors team have been training hard this term with fortnightly walks on Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor.
Here are some photos from the first of these which started from Meldon Reservoir on Dartmoor with a VERY steep ascent up Yes Tor and onward... Walkers experienced freezing rain and blasting wind at times, with beautiful moments when the sun made an ethereal appearance. After 17.2km, vivid Dartmoor autumn colours, combined with bog and tussock everyone was ready for a good night’s sleep!
Since the Meldon Reservoir walk, the team have gradually increased the distance they walk with day expeditions from Rough Tor and Minions. Everyone is now really looking forward to the first camping expedition which will take place on the weekend of 18th/19th January with students camping at the Fox and Hounds on Dartmoor.
