The last one, Brent Tor

I’m still not sure why I left this one until last on my list, and having walked to Quintins Man last week, I thought at the time that I should have made that one my last. However here I am. The last one on my list of 287 Dartmoor tors, hills and rocks that I wanted to walk. I will add that there are a fair few more out there, but they are the ones in trees, the lesser tors I think they are called. 287 is my list and this one is the last new one I will climb. I hadn’t planned on climbing it today, it was supposed to be tomorrow (in fact it was 5 hours ago as I type this), however the stage was set for a sunset as I wanted that to be my last backdrop. i just made it, arriving in the car park about 25 minutes before sundown, however the view east was a bit hazy, meaning a re-visit is needed (always the plan anyway!!). So, how does it feel to finish, I have to say that I am actually very happy with myself, being type 1 diabetic this sort of thing holds a risk and I’m pleased that I can do my bit to proving that it isn’t an obstacle (Sir Steve Redgrave admittedly proved that beyond reason already!!). So that is that. Now it is time to do it all again, in a different way, with different conditions. Time to do some of my favourite spots again and visit places I’ve neglected too much recently. As far as lists go I still have the Wainwrights to do in the Lake District, I’m on 89 of 214 for that list, so plenty to do. Thank you all for reading this chapter, and here’s to another, happy walking to you all.

No need for a map or table on this walk. The car park is behind me and the tor is there, 10 mins away

    • Absolutely, in fact I’ve just booked a week in April up there. Plus I’ve got another week in August and October tucked away. Should give me at least 25 more Wainwrights this year with any luck!!
