The Perambulation: Dartmoor’s Greatest Long Distance Walk

The forty-three mile boundary of the ‘Ancient Forest of Dartmoor’, at the heart of the National Park, is an established long distance walk. Twelve knights first undertook the walk in 1240 on the orders of King Henry III. Their aim was to define the boundary so that fees for those using the royal land could be exacted.
