Black Tor

A new one on me, a bus journey to the start of the walk and then a bus back home at the end. As I was a little early getting back I was able to walk the length of Burrator and get an ice cream whilst waiting for the bus!! The walk took some of the lesser known tors around Walkhampton Common, however the views were good and gave me a chance to have a look at the Raddick Hill aqueduct.
