A quick walk around Crockern Tor

Finally the weather turned, after a horrible Saturday with high winds and heavy rain, Sunday broke with blue skies. Another storm was heading in from the Atlantic bringing more horrible stuff so a quick walk was needed this morning. I headed to Two Bridges and took advantage of the easy walk up to Crockern Tor before heading round to the farm of the same name and then to Two Bridges. It clouded over just as I was in sight of the car, which was perfect timing!
