Are you ready for some more views of Dartmoor? This post is all about rocks and stone.This was the view we had from the very start of our walk, you see the rocky outcrop in the left of the picture? Well after doing a big circle round the moor that's where we will end up later. but first ........... we're heading down this stone lined path our destination is the Shoveldon Longstoneyou can just ignore me. I actually have no idea what I'm up to in this picture! Just generally being a bit of a village idiot I think. Enough fooling around though we still have plenty more to see. Like the Scorhill Stone CircleI have to admit that my pictures from the stone circle were rather hastily taken, at this point we were being chased down by a bunch of marauding teenagers with maps and compasses, so we beat a hasty path up the nearest hill.On the other side of the hill we found a beautiful medieval church, with some equally beautiful grave statues. Reading the blurb in the church it appears that both the church and the majority of the headstones had been made from granite taken straight from the moor. We're coming to the end of our walk now, but look we still have some blue skies........it's time to go climb that rocky Tor. It's still a way in the distance but it won't take too long to stride across there.
Here we are at the top. Look at all of the fabulous rock filled viewsIt's starting to get a bit chilly now though, the sun is about to set. Time to go warm up by the fire and have some dinner - I think we deserve a little treat after all this walking, don't you?
