This time, with only one tor to get, I parked up at Fernworthy Reservoir car park, the closest place I could, and set off up through the forest on a wide track.

I lingered quite a while, smug at finding my objective so quickly. I sent off a couple of victorious tweets, took plenty of photographs, and then prepared to set off back the way I came to return to the car.

Another bearing set, the compass needle pointed towards another seemingly impenetrable barrier!
