Cut Hill and Sittaford Tor

It had been a while, The last decent walk I did was Helvellyn and that was more than a month ago. Decorating, gardening and work had got in the way too much, well enough was enough and this walk was planned. Initially I only wanted to go as far as Kit Rocks, then across to…

Bellever Tor, Cator and Postbridge

The last walk of the year 2018 and one right in the centre of Dartmoor, setting out from Postbridge. I noticed on setting out that the pub was closed, until mid January, so no end of walk drink for me today. Still I was looking forward to walking over the Riddon Ridge, an area I…

East Dart Waterfall

Considering the amount of rain that has fallen in November it would have been foolish to at least not have attempted a walk to one of the waterfalls on Dartmoor. I considered Lydford Gorge or perhaps Becky Falls but plumped for an old favourite in East Dart Waterfall. The only question would be could I…

Sittaford Tor and Kit Rocks

First big walk back in Devon for a while and wanted to go somewhere new and somewhere I knew! Sittaford Tor looked good plus a walk across to Kit Rocks and then back along the East Dart via the waterfall. The weather didn’t really play ball for the first half of the walk, especially on…
