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 March 2020.

Looking at this table it is clear that 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 most climbed tor alongside nearby Eylesbarrow. The Dewerstone, Cadover and Shaugh Bridges show the circular walk that I do most years, linking that great Plym valley walk. Top of the list is now the South West Coastal Path which will almost certainly increase as I do more walks around the coast this year. 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. Also I’m starting to love the area north of Ivybridge, particularly in the summer evenings in which Hangershell Rock sits so I’m pleased to see this tor on the list. Alongside some new comers, with Pil Tor (near Haytor), Cox Tor (Merrivale) and Crockern Tor (Two Bridges) now on the list. The Cox Tor entry could be because of the great sunset walks I do in June. 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..
