Considering the amount of rain that has fallen in November it would have been foolish to at least not have attempted a walk to one of the waterfalls on Dartmoor. I considered Lydford Gorge or perhaps Becky Falls but plumped for an old favourite in East Dart Waterfall. The only question would be could I cross over and make it a nice circular walk of around 5-6 miles. Luckily for me the November ever-present rain didn’t really fall today, however the wind certainly did blow, gusting over 50 mph for most of the walk. I was certainly glad to be in the valley when I got the chance! The walk raised my spirits which had been dampened by so much recent rain proving that if you take a chance you can get your rewards.
