There is a local legend around these parts of a young man out walking on the moors. As he passes by a peaty bog he spots a hat sitting atop the mire. Picking up the hat, he is astonished to find a man’s head underneath. The young man offers to help the owner of the hat out of his predicament, only for the head to reply; “you are very kind sir, but I fear you may not be able to do much for the horse I am sitting on”. Thankfully this route keeps to firmer ground, allowing you to enjoy Dartmoor’s wonderful heather and granite moorland without fear of becoming submerged. 

From the July 2008 issue of MBR magazine. Check out
