Car parks saturated at Ten Tors

A limited park and ride service will be operating from Okehampton College tomorrow as car parks are saturated on Dartmoor for the Ten Tors challenge.

"Due to further heavy rain falling over the course of today onto already saturated ground, the car parks in Okehampton Camp are increasingly impassable to all but the most robust 4X4 vehicles. Therefore, the successful but limited park and ride facility operated from Okehampton College today will be repeated on Sunday. There will be some limited car parking at the camp.

It must be stressed that 2 wheel-drive and small 4X4s will struggle with mobility. Traffic control will be coordinated in the town. Again, car share system for either park and ride or limited on site parking must be employed. This worked very well this morning and your further patience is greatly appreciated."
