There was a time when I mocked my ‘Tor Bore’ friend who insisted on pointing out every pinprick of a Tor she could faintly see on the horizon. Now I take great pleasure in reciting the names faster than her!
How did that happen? Well having exhausted all our walking books and yet having a giant ordinance survey map on the kitchen wall that beckoned us out onto the moor, my family and I thought maybe we should try just walking from tor to tor. I noticed two major changes in our walks. Firstly, the children loved it and their energy levels increased as they could visualise where the walk was going. Secondly, we all became a little obsessive about ticking these tors off the map.
Thus, we are on a mission to climb and photograph every Tor on Dartmoor.
