Great Mis Tor

Time a quick walk somewhere in the Princetown area and we plumped this time for Great Mis Tor, not too far and with the easy track no need for map reading. For some reason each time I’ve been up on this tor it has never been overly warm, again today despite it being July a…

All around the mast

The mast on North Hessary Tor has to be one of the most recognisable landmarks in any of our National Parks, it certainly is on Dartmoor. This walk is an easy 4 mile circuit with only one real climb up to the mast itself, with the majority of the rest of the walk on old…

Down Tor Stone Row

A day off work and a chance to get out for a walk, not too far from home but this is a first visit to the stone row at Down Tor and fine example of its type. Another chance to climb my first ever tor of Down Tor and one of my favourites. Plenty of…

Eylesbarrow Tin Mine

A lovely day and time for a quick walk to Ditsworthy Warren house and back via the Eylesbarrow tin mine track. As it was such a nice day there was time for a well earned ice cream from Cadover Bridge!

Padstow
