Little Hart Crag and High Hartsop Dodd

Our week in the Lakes arrived and with it the possibility of some changeable weather. To be honest we did pretty well, looking at the forecast the first 3 days would be good, so out we went for 3 walks. Then a day of rain followed by a mixed bag, where we got one more…

Gipsy Rock and Leeden Tor

This wasn’t supposed to be the walk today, I had grand plans of driving into Cornwall and heading up to the highest point of that county, Brown Willy (stop laughing, it is called that). We had walked up High Willhays the last time out, and it would have been a nice symmetry to scale Brown…

100,000 up

I wasn’t sure whether to write anything about this, however it is a bit of a milestone for the blog and website so I figure a thank you is needed to you, the readers. Thank you all, from the humble beginnings of a newly emerging Dartmoor tor or rocky outcrop this website has become a…

8 tors around the roof of Devon

Good weather means good walks are possible. With the dry spell I decided to take the boys up to the highest point in Devon. In fact this is the highest spot in England, south of Derbyshire. We set out from the plentiful parking spots near to Rowtor, and took in 8 tors in total. 5…

The sunset on Cox Tor

I’d missed out on the bluebells of Holwell Lawn this year. so I’d vowed that I’d would do my best to get here for my yearly sunset. The weather played ball and gave me a few options to decide between. As normal I had tea and headed out for any of the car parks below…

Corndon Tor, Leigh Tor and lots in between

A stunning day weatherwise and a perfect time for a walk. This is a good area for seeing different parts of Dartmoor, with classic moorland, mixed with wooded valleys, rivers and some road walking. It provides a walk that is in stark contrast to the normal bleak rolling moorland hills and tors. It was also…
