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 4618 days since I decided to do this, I have visited 263 out of 326 tors, gaining 526 stars according to my rating system. I'm 81% of the way there, with 63 remaining (19 inaccessible).


I'm visiting Dartmoor at a rate of 17.56 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 649 days, which is Sunday, Apr 17, 2022 and
I will have visited every tor in
1106 days, which will be Tuesday, Jul 18, 2023, at about 4:34pm!

Shipley Tor

Shipley Tor - Saturday, Dec 19, 2009

Shipley Tor is not as easy to get to as it first seems. It is close to Shipley Bridge car park, but all the land on the East side of the Avon is private, forcing you to walk up the Avon Dam access road to the next bridge, then double back down the opposite side of the river. The views to the south are worth it though, as are the views up the Avon valley.

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.
