Ten Tors Training

Ten Tors Training

There were many sun & wind burnt faces returning from the first two day training expedition on Dartmoor.  Although the sun shone, the cold wind kept the temperature down.  The teams set off from the small village of Belstone near Okehampton and walked across the north moor to camp near Prewley.  The students all settled in their tents by 9 o’clock after pitching tents, cooking, eating and tidying – a first for many years. 

On Sunday, after the clocks had moved forward, they were up and prepared to start walking again from the Y-junction near Okehampton Army Camp.  Some struggled for various reasons but most successfully completed the walk across and down the moor to finish near Warren House Inn.  A big thank you to the adults who were out supporting the students over the weekend and for organising the transport home, after one of the buses broke down at Okehampton.  

Please could students return any maps, compasses & team phones as soon as possible ready for the Mock expedition straight after the Easter holidays.
