Walkaboutwest offer a professional guiding service on Bodmin Moor or across Cornwall. Mark Camp is a fully qualified Blue Badge Tour Guide and is one of only a handful of guides accredited to guide at Cornish Mining World Heritage sites in the county.
For Mark the moors mean open space and an abundance of history. He rarely has a day on the moor when he does not find something new to look at and his quest to document all of the prehistoric sites on the moor has led to him walking to some very distant corners of it.
