It’s Bluebell Time!


Bluebells at Holwell Lawn

It’s  that spectacular time of year when the bluebells bathe large swathes of Dartmoor with their vibrant hues. In many locations on Dartmoor, particularly the woodlands (see http://bit.ly/9nnsJK), the bluebells are in full swing but over the coming days the moorland around Holwell Lawn will get progressively ‘carpeted’. This area between Hemsworthy Gate (between Widecombe and Haytor) and Hound Tor rocks is particularly vivid and walks of varying lengths can be taken. Visit the National Park Information Centre at Haytor or purchase a 47 page walks booklet from the online shop – http://www.nationalparks.gov.uk/dnpa_shop/products.asp?category=Leaflets

    This is the 60th year of Dartmoor being a National Park. If you are participating in or going to see the Ten Tors or Jubilee Challenge 11/12th May why not use this blog site to let others know of your experiences? If you are undertaking the challenge good luck!
