Due to heavy rain over the last week, the moor was very wet and most streams were impossible to cross. The rain mainly held off during the two walks and the cloud parted often enough to allow for some good views.
The group stayed in a bunkhouse on the site of a Victorian gunpowder factory in the middle of the moor, which was atmospheric and comfortable with a wood burning stove to keep everyone warm. Students helped cook a chicken curry for supper, and a full cooked breakfast was enjoyed by all in the morning.
All participants were excellent company throughout the trip and coped very well with the boggy conditions underfoot.
