Dartmoor Tor by Tor

Welcome to my tor bagging page in which I go on a tour of Dartmoor tor by tor. While I’ve not challenged myself to visit all of the Dartmoor tors, I’ve decided to visit as many as possible. For each tor that I visit, I will collect a publishable photo. My rule is that I take the photo of the tor, or from the tor, whichever provides the best view. Yes, I know that this may well lead to an obsession. However, there are so many that I’m sure that I will never complete the list. As for the list of tors, well, what is the list? There are many more tors than are marked on the OS maps, so lets ignore that. Wikipedia has a list but, by its own admission, it is incomplete. Several more lists have been put together by enthusiasts, and I’ve decided to use Dave Bellamy’s. One reason for this is that he also provides a list of GPS resources. I have used this to plug into tools like Google Maps and Viewranger to help in my travels. Please click on one of the images below to come exploring with me.

OK, so there are to my knowledge, no Zs, but something in me won’t let the list end at Y.
