Higher White Tor

A walk to remove the excesses of Christmas and what a walk we had, fantastic blue sky, crisp and a great route. This has to be one of my favourite walks on Dartmoor and you can add more onto this walk if the days are longer heading on towards Rough Tor and back via Beardown…

Cadover Bridge, Shaugh Bridge and Wigford Down

A walk out of necessity to get out of the house, there wasn’t a lot of colour out there today however the walk from Cadover to Shaugh Bridge and back is one of my favourites. Ironically, looking back, the same walk was done in glorious sunshine at the same time last year

Bellever Tor

It was a lovely November day, cold on the tops but lovely and sunny with superb views all round. Bellever Tor was the choice today and a great walk it was.

Dodd

Our last walk in The Lakes before the long drive home to Plymouth, a decision was made to attempt a bit of a bogey hill for us in Dodd. Previously we had attempted an ascent and been monsooned off the hill by heavy rain!! We started out in sun knowing by tea rain was due…

Wansfell

Staying in Troutbeck it would have been daft of us not to have a walk up to Wansfell via Nanny Lane, the weather looked as though it would cover the tops in low cloud, however as we reached the summit it cleared enough to give us some views.

Sallows and Sour Howes

After a couple of damp days in the Lake District we finally woke to a clear day and the prospect of a fantastic day in the fells. The weather turned out to be better than it should have been and warm for late October and these two little fells provided a fabulous walk. These two…

Arnison Crag

We have come to The Lakes in autumn for a week to sample the changing colours and weather at this time of year, with that there will hopefully be less bracken than in the summer as well!! We were staying in Troutbeck, so whilst waiting for the house to be ready, we popped over the…

A circuit of Avon Reservoir

A birthday walk around Avon Dam which didn’t quite go as planned. The ford which was marked on the map even after a long period of dry weather was 12 inches deep which meant boots off and wading was in order!! Still an area I’ve never been to before and its better than sitting in…

Pew Tor

Time for a no rush, easy walk from Pork Hill car park, with some lovely scenery but nothing too strenuous for a Sunday afternoon! Some new hills collected, shame that the sun only came out at the end but it at least meant that the ice cream van got some custom!

Great Crag and Grange Fell

I have to say I wasn’t expecting much from this walk from Watendlath. The road up here is narrow but once at the end a little oasis opens up with high ground all around. Both these two fells have many lumps on their summit vying for the highest point but it is the views that…
