The Elusive Bucktor!

BucktorBucktor Bucktor is an elusive tor!  Looking for it afforded me much time to catch my breath on a beautiful circular walk that takes in the meeting of the River Tavy and the River Walkham at Double Waters. It seems I have walked past it many times not even knowing of its existence, it is not listed in lots of 'tor' guides but Terry Bound sites it so the other day I made it a mission to find it.

One reason I have not noticed it before is because it does not stand proud of the land but nestles into the hillside snugly tucked in by lots of greenery!  If you follow the path along the river from Grenofen towards Double Waters, Bucktor can be found on the right hand side just before you get to some houses. It is rather unhelpfully named 'Buckator' on the OS map!

Anyway, I hope my mission was successful.  If anyone can confirm for me whether this picture shows Bucktor or not I would be really greatful. If it is not I will get my walking boots and deer stalker on and go sleuthing once more!
