I have worked as a Ranger since 2004, moving down here from my native Suffolk for the job. Having spent much of my early twenties travelling around the world, I really didn't want an office based 9-5 job. I returned to college as a mature student and studied Countryside Management with the hope that it might lead into an interesting outdoor job - and here I am!
One of my favourite areas on Dartmoor (apart from Fox tor Café) is around Burrator Reservior. There is so much archaeology to explore and stunning scenery to enjoy. And all just a 5 minute walk away from the hustle bustle of the busy reservoir. The Plym Valley area is also fascinating, packed with ancient remains and interesting walks.
I love meeting people out on the moor and helping them to get the best from this amazing national park.
