Having been treated to 80mph winds and two days of horrible rain on the Friday and Saturday of last weekend – we went in to Sunday morning with a little trepidation. As the Met Office kept changing its mind as to what the day would do, we met in school bright and early to head up on to the moors. This weeks walk started at Two Bridges, where the minibus crew of Rowan, Issy, George, Elisha, and Courtney met up with Robert, Kitty and Bea and we headed up to Littaford and Longaford Tors in windy but dry and occasionally sunny conditions. The excessive weather of the previous two days meant we were on our revised ‘flood risk’ route – meaning we were unable to cross the river Dart where we planned. According to the Met office the after noon was going to be very wet, and very foggy – and how right they were. After lunch in the forest below Beardown Tors we emerged into heavy rain and thick fog and had to undertake our ‘close navigation’ skills learnt the week before. With the occasions glimpse of the moors as the fog lifted for a few minutes we headed up to Lydford Tor and then Crow Tor where the weather really hit us – we waded through the wet heather and mud back to Beardown Tors, keeping up spirit with a good sing song, and then crossed the river and headed up the track to the finish at Holming Beam – never had the school minibus looked so inviting. Our pedometer said 27,000 steps, our legs said 50,000… 4 seasons in one day – well we had three of them.
