Goat Hill Bridge Car Park
Off B3358, Simonsbath, TA24 7LL
Join a National Park Ranger to gain confidence in visiting the countryside at night, listen to the sounds and gaze in awe at the heavens. It is equally likely the mists will be swirling and the rain sweeping across – a different but eerie experience not to be missed! Expect very rough ground in exceptionally low light; torches are not going to be used but please bring one for emergency use. 3½ miles maximum. This event may be cancelled in bad weather. £5p.p. Booking essential. This event is taking place as part of the Exmoor Dark Skies Festival 2018.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 29/10/2018
