Harford parking

These are a few parking areas around the south west corner of Dartmoor allowing you to get up on to Penn, Harford, Stall and Ugborough Moors. The spaces at Harford are well used and this is a popular spot for wildcamping, you can easily get 10 cars here, and I haven’t failed to get a spot yet. Be aware however there has been closures at this parking in 2021/22 so check before heading up. If it is closed then head back down the hill and park by the church. The areas at New Waste and Rook will only fit a couple of cars at best, the New Waste area has been gated off (you can still walk through it) to stop people parking so you need to park down the road a bit about 500 metres from the gate. The last spot is just outside Cornwood, its just off the road coming into Cornwood from the northwest, and its a car park which will take about 6 cars.
