The Two Moors Way Association is an entirely voluntary-run organisation seeking to support the route. A small committee oversees the work of the Association and they manage this website.
There is not currently an individual membership scheme but if you are interested please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register your interest so we can gauge the appetite for such a scheme. If you would like to be involved in the Association we’d love to hear from you!
Following the retirement and sad loss of many founding members of the Association the committee it was re-formed in 2016.

Les Bright is a member of Ramblers, and currently chairs the Exeter and District Group. He is passionate about the pleasure, health benefits and sense of well being that can be gained from walking regularly – in the countryside, on the coast or in cities. The Two Moors Way ticks two of those boxes by passing through hamlets, villages and small towns as it stretches from coast-to-coast. Now retired from a career in the field of social welfare, Les aims to spend a minimum of one day every week walking in the region’s beautiful landscape, while still finding time to pursue other interests such as serving on the board of a community-owned business in Exeter and writing on a diverse range of topics.
John Howell is currently a member of the Exeter & District Group of the Ramblers. John has a strong passion for walking and the environment, and believes that this recreational activity provides pleasure, significant health benefits for local residents and visitors, and sustainable support for local businesses.
He has walked the route four times and supported the Two Moors Way Association for around fifteen years. John believes we are very fortunate that the route traverses the important historic landscapes of Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks, and the rolling Mid Devon landscape with many interesting villages and hamlets.
His great passion is walking on Dartmoor, enjoying the landscape, the archaeology and the social history of the area. He is currently a member of the Dartmoor Access Forum and Treasurer of the Dartmoor Preservation Association.
