Lynch Tor and Bagga Tor

Just a quick walk today, not too far but still a fair bit of height to give a good view. I’m fond of the area around Lynch Tor, in fact its one of my favourite tors and the views west are fantastic. Standon Hill is another with a great view with parts of Tavy Cleave just visible. The weather was decent as well which was a bonus. I headed down off Standon Hill on the steep descent which was far better than climbing it which I did last time!!

The views west across the fields of West Devon, never disappoint
