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…

Crownhill Tor and all around the China Clay works

Boulters Tor and Wedlake

This is a second part of a walk that I wanted to complete a month or so back, to make a longer walk. I wasn’t really up for a walk on the first outing, so cut it short, here is the second half of the walk, a few weeks later. The weather was decent, the…
