My most visited places

Below is a quick table of my most visited places so far. Whether it be a tor, a historical or water based site, a bridge or building. I’ll try to keep this table updated as often as I can and the below is correct as of January 2022. So it includes our Covid period which may skew the results a bit towards the south west of Dartmoor!!

Looking at this table it is clear that the South West Coastal path is taking top spot from now on and after this I may remove it from this list as it becomes visited in a similar way to Dartmoor, and therefore treated in that way. I like both Norsworthy Bridge and Shipley Bridge as starting points, they both feature highly, with Norsworthy Bridge being my starting out point for Down Tor, which is my favourite and still high on my list of climbed tors alongside nearby Eylesbarrow. The Dewerstone, Cadover and Shaugh Bridges show the circular walk that I do most years, linking that great Plym valley walk. There is also the Devonport Leat, running from north of Princetown all the way to Burrator showing the area that I walk in most. It is no surprise that the south west corner of Dartmoor is my go to place on Dartmoor, living in Plymouth I guess that is to be expected. The Cox Tor entry could be because of the great sunset walks I do in June and Pil Tor will no doubt be in there due to the number of tors in the area which provide a great way of ticking off ten tors in a short walk, compared to other parts of the moor. Finally the East Dart walk to the waterfall and back is a brilliant way of exploring some of the wilder parts of the moor, starting and finishing in Postbridge, will mean refreshments at the end of the walk as well as the very popular Postbridge clapper bridge..
