Dartmoor’s ‘Mini Ten Tors’

Sunday 17th November 2019

Earlier this year, Country Walking Magazine penned and published a circular route on Dartmoor that they regard as the ‘Mini Ten Tors’. Much smaller than its fifty-five mile cousin, this one is only nine miles in length and can be completed in a single day.
