Who we are



The Wheeled Access Group was set up in 2017 as part of Moorland Guides. We wanted to find routes on Dartmoor so that the 2018 Dartmoor Walking Festival could offer walks to people using powered chairs and mobility scooters.

We have come a long way since then. Each year we have led between 6 and 8 walks for the walking festival and have worked with local land managers and land owners on Dartmoor to make routes more accessible.

We are:

  • Sixteen people who use a range of mobility scooters including the Disabled Ramblers reps for Devon and Cornwall

  • Four Moorland Guides, fully qualified to lead groups on the moor (Amanda Head, Andy Dunstan, Phil Watson, Dawn Williamson). We also have support from other Moorland Guides when needed.

  • Nine spouses, friends, supporters

  • Many others who join us on our 'public' walks through the year and during the Dartmoor Walking Festival
