The weather was set fair for the weekend and after a big lunch we decided on a walk help digest the food! I’ve been up North Hessary Tor before , however I’ve never been to the two satellite tors that sit on its north western side. This walk isn’t more than an hour and involves a gentle climb to the top with plenty of opportunity to stop and admire the views down to Cornwall in the west and north into the heart of Dartmoor.
