Dartmoor: The Tors and Rocks near Venford Reservoir

Spring had definitely arrived this weekend and as much as I would have liked to have spent the whole weekend exploring, I had to get out into the garden and complete some much needed maintenance. That left me with a hastily arranged day off work on the Monday to get out on the moor and that day, I thought I would explore some of the tors and rocks above the River Dart.

Dartmoor: Tors and Rocks from Cadover Bridge

Back in August 2015, I made my first visit to this south-western corner of the national park. In the height of summer, the weight of growth in the woods, the height of the bracken, made it difficult to explore and I had to give up on any attempt of reaching Shaugh Beacon from the path on West Down. I wagered that a trip in the cooler months might prove more fruitful.
