West Mill Tor

Last light at West Mill Tor, Dartmoor

West Mill Tor is one of the dominant tors in northern Dartmoor. It is particularly prominent because it sits directly above the “car park” along the military track from Okehampton Camp. I put “car park” in quotes as it is at the limit of public vehicular access with space for 3 or 4 cars.

When I first saw it I mistook it for Yes Tor. However, it is a little distant from Yes and somewhat lower. The views in all directions are superb and, late on a summers evening the views to the west are magnificent.

The first time I bagged it was when returning from Yes Tor to my car in pitch darkness. this photo was taken on a return visit a few months later.
