From the centre of this ancient land, the vistas are simply breathtaking. On a clear day you can see for miles across expansive moorland, while above, the skies are simply huge. 

It's a perfect place to head out for a night walk, stopping every now and again to gaze in wonder at a sparkling, star-filled sky. View planets, constellations and the Milky Way arcing above. Or if you're really lucky, see colourful meteors shooting through the atmosphere. 

These shooting stars have been known to produce 100 meteors an hour at their peak. They can create a spectacular display with multi-coloured tails ranging from white, yellow and a few green, red and blue. But of course we can't guarantee we'll see it quite like this! 

Even so, whether its clear or cloudy, we'll take you on an experience that'll ramp up your feel-good factor. Alison will weave in a sensory, mindful activity that'll reconnect you to this big wide-world. Fabian will tell you about planet earth and the night sky. You'll learn lots, take tools away with you - and feel amazing too! 

Of course we can't guarantee the weather, but even if it's cloudy, scientists have now proved embracing the dark is good for the soul. While walking at night is an incredible experience that is invigorating, immersive and boosts your mood too. What's not to like?! 

Walk information
The walk length will be roughly 4-5 miles and on good footpaths. There are hills, rough ground and mud in this walk route too. For your comfort, a good, baseline fitness will be needed for this activity.
