Probably Higher Tor and Belstone Tor

It was a long promised trip, so when the weather turned all autumnal on us we decided to go anyway and shorten the trip if necessary.

We left the car in Belstone and set off into the mist on Friday evening.  At the edge of the village you join the track to Taw Marsh, we were greeted with a heavy downpour so it was coats on and heads down.

As I had left work late it was soon getting dark. After a couple of miles we started looking for somewhere to camp and found a bit of shelter off the track in the bracken.

The night was blustery but fairly dry.  Next morning we were still surrounded by mist, so rather than walking further up the valley we headed up to Higher Tor and then Belstone Tor.

A shorter walk than planned due to the weather but still a fun trip. As you can tell.
