Hennock and Shaptor Rock

This is an area I hadn’t been to for perhaps 5 years now, long before I started this website. I did part of this walk ( in the opposite direction), heading up the lane from Five Lanes, then down towards the reservoirs before looping back through the woods and past Great Rock. I thoroughly enjoyed…

Hangershell Rock and Butterdon Hill

Just a short walk today with a couple of aims, the first was to scout out a wild camp spot and the second to find Tor Rocks. As it was both these two aims are within about 100 metres of each other. We started out from the Harford Gate car car and headed up to…

Crow Tor and Longaford Tor

Time for a good walk and one in pretty much my favourite area of Dartmoor. I love walking around here, the views are always great, there’s a pub or two for the end of the walk and there’s lots of tors to summit and many routes to do them. This is a walk I’ve done…

Whitehill Tor and Blackalder Tor

Saturday had been a pretty grotty day and wasn’t getting any better. The boys were crawling up the walls, or more accurately, with their heads buried in technology and gaming. Enough was enough and we had to get out, there were some breaks in the rain late afternoon so we headed out. This isn’t really…

A short walk around Ingra Tor and Leeden Tor

We had a bit of time on a Saturday afternoon and decided that a walk was needed, plus an ice cream. So I picked a spot where an ice cream van was guaranteed and we set off. Its been a while since I’ve been on Ingra Tor and I reversed my normal route in order…

West Devon Way Day 3 – Yelverton to Hooe Lake

The last day of three (Day 1 and Day 2 here) and I felt pretty good. This had been my first long ish walk, over multiple days and I was felling like I could carry on for at least two more days. I’ve already started looking at the South West Coast Path for next year,…

West Devon Way Day 2 – Lydford to Yelverton

Day 2 (Day 1 is here) and after a few pints in the Castle Inn at Lydford and a decent nights sleep I was ready. Breakfast downstairs was the full English variety and by 10am I was on my way. Today was a long day, 16 miles, a fair bit on roads so I knew…
