The Walsingham Nature Reserve (also known as Tom Moore's Jungle) is in Hamilton Parish on the North Eastern edge of the Harrington Sound.
The Jungle is an amazing place and packs a lot of interest into its relatively small area.
Wind your way round small tree- enclosed dirt paths, passing mangroves, sea water filled caverns, deep dry caves and weird limestone formations. The Jungle gives an impression of what Bermuda must have been like to the first settlers, before it became the most densely populated country on the planet.
The main interest in this area for the climber is centred on the Walsingham Pond near to the Tavern. The Pond features a pair of buttresses of immaculate Aeolian limestone around 6m high at its West End. One route exists at present but this should increasee shortly.
Tom Moore himself is famed for his poetry, and is considered to be Ireland's National Bard, but as he did not wax lyrical on the quality of the Deep Water Solo'ing at this venue he will never be considered a climber.
Access- follow the road round the Sound before turning off at a signpost for Tom Moore's Tavern and park at the Tavern.
