Dartmoor is one of Britain’s most beautiful and remote areas, covering some 368 square miles.
But it is renowned for its changeable weather conditions, and without sensible precautions it could catch you unaware. Even the most experienced walkers have been caught out by the weather, or overtaken by darkness or injury.
Never be embarrassed to cut your route short. If need be, turn back to safety.
Phone signal is patchy at the best of times. Do not rely on phone signal alone, for mapping or communications.
In an emergency, dial or text 999 and follow the instructions you are given. If you are told to stay where you are, do so.
