Two Blondes Walking ®
Lucy and Fi, Blondes One and Two, love all hill walking but their favourite walks are Dartmoor walks. They like nothing better than throwing their rucksacks on, getting their map and compass out and setting out across the moor.
Navigation Training Courses
Lucy and Fi are both Mountain Training England qualified, and experienced Walking Group Leaders. As well as offering bespoke navigation training courses tailored to fit individuals or groups, they run a series of beginner navigation courses, improver navigation courses and night navigation courses throughout the year. Check here for navigation workshop dates. Email us for more information.
DofE, Ten Tors, World Challenge
Lucy is in charge of outdoor education at Trinity School in Teignmouth. She is their DofE Manager, does overseas expedition work via World Challenge and helps out with Ten Tors Challenge training. Both Blondes are committed to expedition work with young people. Fi works on a freelance and voluntary basis as a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award trainer and expedition leader.
Fi is a keen outdoor swimmer and swims in some of Devon’s most beautiful places including its stunning coast and Dartmoor. When the rivers are in chilly winter hibernation, Fi swims in the sea and on most weekdays can be found admiring the sunrise from the water.
Dartmoor Wild Camping
Dartmoor is England’s only legal wild camping area and both Lucy and Fi are advocates of backpack camping within the Dartmoor National Park regulations and according to the Dartmoor wild camping map. Lucy and Fi run Dartmoor wild camping weekends to encourage the proper and safe use of this fantastic natural resource.
We Blondes love Dartmoor so much we have written three children’s books about it. Shop here for your copies of The Dartmoor Christmas Tree, Dart the River and The Non-Story of Ignatius Bowerman. Our Find and Explore books have been designed to get the young ones out exploring Dartmoor and you out walking with them.
