I was heading for a day out in Tavistock and decided that a nice walk at Burrator would build up an appetite for lunch! An easy walk to Down Tor was planned, giving lovely views back to Burrator reservoir. I’ve said a number of times that this is my favourite tor on Dartmoor due to these views, but its also because, that despite it being 20 minutes walk from the car park you can have plenty of alone time up there. There were plenty of spring lambs again plus a number of Dartmoor foals which were great to see.
