I've been lucky enough to have grown up on Dartmoor and after a spell in the military, I returned to live on the moor. As a teenager, many of my weekends were spent walking for enjoyment and in more recent years I have rediscovered that joy of walking on Dartmoor.
My wife and I are lucky enough to live on the edge of Dartmoor in a lovely location that enjoys wonderful views across the moor, so one day we decided we would set ourselves a challenge of visiting every named tor and hill on the moor (of which we believe there to be 307... if you have any additions please let us know).
This will be a challenge in planning as well as the actual task of walking to them all. Some require many hours of hard walking, others can be visited by a two minute walk from the car. Most are access able however there are a few which are in private hands and have got restricted or no access. For these I will try to seek permission to visit however I believe that this may be futile in some cases in which case I will do what ever I need to do at the time.
I am a software developer by trade so being stuck in the office for five days a week means by the weekend I am desperate to get out on the moor and get the wind on my face. Sometimes I have the good fortune to be joined by my wife and at other times I walk by myself... I enjoy both.
