It had been such a good week, weather wise, and it seemed right to get out again for another long walk. This one allowed for some new tops for me as well as an old favourite. Unfortunately the weather, whilst dry, was absolutely bitter and a reminder that spring isn’t quite here yet!! I’d also forgotten my spare camera battery and i ran out of juice on White Tor, meaning the planned pictures of Setters Rocks and Stephen’s Grave could not be taken! A revisit needed, maybe Easter weekend!

Just after starting out you get this view back over western Devon to Bodmin Moor in the distance
Boulters Tor is quickly reached, Cox Tor on the right
Brent Tor stands proud from Boulters Tor
The tors around Hare Tor and Great Links Tor lie to the north
White Tor (I’ll be up there later) with Great Mis Tor on the right
On the road to Wapsworthy, there are great views from here to Hare Tor and Ger Tor. That’s Standon Hill on the right looking a long way off.
Bagga Tor was next and time for a brew
Views to Tavy Cleave and Ger Tor from Bagga Tor
Down and up to Standon Hill
Then round to Lynch Tor
Looking back to Bagga Tor as I start the climb to Standon Hill
After huffing and puffing up to Standon Hill this is the view west to Cornwall (shame the cloud has dropped!)
Cloud was definitely building. As I look to White Tor right with Great Mis Tor left
Lynch Tor from Standon Hill
And in reverse, Standon Hill from Lynch Tor!
The mist drops onto Great Mis Tor with North Hessary Tor and the mast barely visible now
Lynch Tor flag pole and the wilderness into the centre of Dartmoor
Lynch Tor on the right with Standon Hill left
Normally one of my favourite views, Bagga Tor in the centre of the photo, shame the mist has come in.
Looking back again to Standon Hill and Lynch Tor
White Tor ahead
One of the best military huts on the moor, blends in nicely with White Tor behind
Wilderness from White Tor
Sunshine hits Brat Tor to the north from White Tor
My way down is to the left here heading for Stephens Grave, it was at this point my camera ran out of battery, so a return visit is needed!
