This is a walk to another of the smaller, lesser tors that I haven’t been to before. Aller Brook Outcrop is a nice little gathering of rocks overlooking the River Dart and its valley. We decided to add in Combestone Tor as well as it allowed us to carry on following the Aller Brook as we had done to get to the outcrop. The weather was a mixed bag with showers sweeping in on the strong breeze in between long spells of sunshine. For November it wasn’t too cold but the leaves on the trees are mostly on the ground now, so hopefully it means the frosty weather is nearly here. The end of this walk gave us a chance to do half a circuit of Venford Reservoir and take in some lovely reflections along the water.
