North Hessary Tor

The final walk of 2016 and the weather was as good as it will ever get (except maybe a bit of snow). The views were very clear, the sky as blue as it can be and no wind at all. The boys and i had a quick sprint up North Hessary Tor and back, starting out from the Rundlestone side. Its a very easy walk and gives you superb views in all directions, especially on a day like this. Great way to end the year. Happy New year to all and have a healthy active 2017!

Looking back down the lane to the start point and beyond to Great Mis Tor


Same view back as we cross the cattle grid by Rundlestone Tor


To the east with the tors around Beardown


At the trig point summit and on North Hessary Tor with the TV mast building behind


Looking across towards the Staple Tors with Cornwall in the distance


Great Mis Tor looks superb (or is that Great!!) from this viewpoint


What a view


Into the sun and a hazier view over the southern tors around Peek Hill


Rundlestone Tor is next in the foreground with Great Mis behind and White Tor to the left of that


Yoga on Rundlestone Tor, obviously!!!


Hollow Tor is only a short hop away on the left of picture but that wasn’t for us today. The Staple Tors are right of shot above the Merrivale quarry


Last one and another view over towards Holming Beam and the Beardown Tors among others
