Hen Tor

This was just one of those times when only a walk would do. I had to get out, the weather wasn’t great but I managed to visit some new spots and tors. Plus I finally visited the other side of the Plym from Ditsworthy Warren House! The walk back following the leat which runs parallel to the River Plym was very boggy in places and I should have stayed higher up the hill and returned over the Trowlesworthy Tors.
