The Original Online Resource for Dartmoor Tors and Hills, since 2007
I've set myself the
challenge of visiting every tor or hill on Dartmoor, and nabbing a photo or two
at the top. Below is a summary of my progress. The start
date is the day I created this page: 15th November, 2007.
As of November 2010, at least two other people have created websites
based on this list, and are trying to get round them all too.
Tim Jenkinson's excellent flickr photostream, in particular his Lesser Known Tors of Dartmoor set has proved to be invaluable, if a little demoralising!
days since I decided to do this, I have visited
stars according to my rating system. I'm
of the way there, with
remaining (19 inaccessible).
I'm visiting Dartmoor at a
17.69 days per tor.
At this rate:
I reached 100 tors on Saturday 29th November, 2008;
I reached the halfway point on Saturday, 27th March, 2010;
I reached 200 tors on Saturday 22nd January, 2011;
I will reach 300 tors in
days, which is
Thursday, May 26, 2022
I will have visited every tor in

Little Staple Tor - Saturday, Nov 15, 2008
The easiest of the three Staple Tors to reach, and on the day I visited, the one with the best view as the other two were in cloud. You can see the Tamar Bridges from here. I walked from Lawn Corner via Roos Tor and the other two Staple Tors.
click on any tor name in the left hand column below, you see a list of all tors
within walking distance (1Km).
with an asterisk (*)
are not (in theory) open to the public and probably won't be
visited. At present there are
19 tors that cannot be visited.
There are more than a few sites out there that are using this list of tors without crediting me. For the avoidance of all doubt, this list of tors is my own work and represents a significant expenditure of time and effort on my part. If you use it for any purpose, please credit me and link back to this site.
