Dartmoor Tors
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!

In the 4734 days since I decided to do this, I have visited 264 out of 326 tors, gaining 527 stars according to my rating system. I'm 81% of the way there, with 62 remaining (19 inaccessible).


I'm visiting Dartmoor at a rate of 17.93 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 645 days, which is Sunday, Aug 7, 2022 and
I will have visited every tor in
1111 days, which will be Thursday, Nov 16, 2023, at about 4:34pm!

Great Staple Tor

Great Staple Tor - Saturday, Nov 15, 2008

Great Staple Tor lies on the same plateau as Roos Tor between Cox Tor and Great Mis Tor. Views on a clear day would be excellent, but the tor was up in the clouds when I visited. Easiest to reach from one of the car parks on the main roas past Cox Tor, but I parked at Lawn Corner and walked via Roos Tor.

If you click on any tor name in the left hand column below, you see a list of all tors within walking distance (1Km).

Tors marked 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.
