Join the Exmoor Perambulation

Joseph Bulmer

The annual Exmoor Perambulation long-distance, circular endurance walk around the 31 mile boundary of the old Exmoor Royal Forest will take place on Saturday, June 25.

The challenging walk dates back more than 725 years, covering breathtaking scenery and parts of the National Park not normally open to the public. There is a half-distance option, which includes transport back to the start.

The walk starts from the Exmoor National Park’s Pinkery Outdoor Education Centre, near Simonsbath. Registration is from 7- 8am and walkers can start as soon as they are registered.

For anyone finding the 31 miles too challenging there is a half-distance option, which includes minibus transport back to the start to get your certificate, have a cup of tea and collect your car. There is also a BBQ at the half-way checkpoint to enjoy while waiting for your transfer in the minibus.

This year the Exmoor Perambulation is being organised by the Exmoor Tourist Association having taken it over from Active Exmoor. The same committee will be running the event but with additional help from members of the Association.

Places are limited to the first 200 people. Visit www.exmoorperambulation.co.uk to find out more.
