This 2-day Summer Moorland Walking Leader training course is intended for those wishing to lead walking groups on single day expeditions within the South West’s moorland areas, such as Dartmoor and Brecon Beacons, in summer conditions. This award is part of the South West Moorland Leader (SWML) scheme.
