Steeperton Tor

Last Saturday I made a quick dash down to Dartmoor before all the snow melted. It is probably still there now, I have not checked. I decided to go to Belstone as it is just off the A30 so hoped that it would be not too snowbound. The village looked beautiful under inches of snow.

I made my way up the valley and out on to Taw Marsh. Although it was late in the day there were a few people about, mostly on heading down the valley as I went out.

When I got to the end of the valley I decided to go straight up Steeperton Tor and crashed about in the snow past my knees. Should have remember my gaiters really.

I headed back along Oke Tor and Belstone Common before dropping and down to Belstone.
