There certainly are some forbidding moors within the Exmoor National Park, but there are also fast-flowing, peat covered rivers, waterfalls and steep hillsides covered with oak woodlands. It's wonderful walking country. And autumn, before the weather starts to get dirty, is the best time to visit. ——————————————————————————————————1/5—— Are you getting value for money? 674 DO NOT LET MY SHARES GO DOWN p510 Fit VFM Flashback What's On
