I recently embarked on writing a series of books of Dartmoor walks, the first being Walks with Winnie, which offers a selection of twelve favourites from the popular “Walks with Winnie” column in the Oke Links Magazine.
Walks With Winnie
In Walks with Winnie, Winnie, the Working Cocker Spaniel and now Scooby, a rescued Fox Red Lab, guide us through twelve beautiful walks in and around North Dartmoor, Devon.
Taking picturesque paths through bluebell woods, over and around abundant rivers and reservoirs, walking up on to breathtaking open moorland, and visiting Dartmoor’s many tors, including High Willhays the highest tor on Dartmoor.
I have been walking on Dartmoor for over thirty years. Having lived near the famous Warren House Inn for a time, Dartmoor has been my back garden. Animals, dogs, sport and the outdoors have been my life.
With various dogs over the years, including Diesel (a Chocolate Lab) and Winnie, with a background in fitness training, I have been taking walking groups out on the moors to explore and get fit since 2014.
The combination of walking with my dogs, and exploring Dartmoor with my groups whilst also keeping fit, has been the inspiration for producing this book.
Each walk has an illustrated map by Sara Nunan who has been illustrating and designing books and maps for over twenty years, together with photographs to help and inspire you along the way.
It also includes a fun little flick book at each page corner, of Winnie and me walking with you.
