There’s a nasty rumour making the rounds that I like bagging Dartmoor tors from the comfort of the car – so much so that tors very close to a road have been dubbed “hillplodder tors”. Obviously there is no truth in this vile accusation at all.
But I have been known to visit tors requiring only a short walk from the car, and I often knock a few of these off on the day I drive down to Dartmoor. They fit into an afternoon quite well, especially for tors that wouldn’t fit nicely into an all-day walk. So this weekend, I drove down to Dartmoor, and wended my way through the eastern part of the National Park, stopping off to visit a few tors, rocks and hills…

Great video Richard. You have captured the beauty of Dartmoor perfectly. Congratulations.
There’s a fair few tors, even the bigger ones such as Sharpitor and Peek Hill were you walk about 100 metres to the top. Nowt wrong with that!!
I know. Some people seem to think it only counts if you’ve had a swim in the nearest river, climb to the very highest point, starting from below sea level and pose a jelly baby there. You know who you are 😉
