Walking uphill to Staple Tor, the weather didn’t look too clever. Unfortunately, my 4 labradors, George, Fury, Tiggy and Sophie don’t quite understand or care if it rains 🙂

At the start of the walk, it was a mixture of strong winds, the odd blast of sun and spits of rain. In fact hail stones had fallen 5 minutes before the start of the walk.

From a distance, Staple Tor is difficult to distinguish all its features. There are three parts to Staple Tors – Little, Mid and Great. Great Staple Tor is famous for its towers of granite blocks that perch on each other creating unusual shapes. Little Staple Tor has an extensive clitter field. The Staple Tors together with Roos Tor form a chain of tors that stand proud on the west side of the Walkham valley.

From the summit you have stunning views across Dartmoor National Park.

Staple Tor is one of the largest Tors on Dartmoor as well as one of the highest. These naturally formed granite stones are incredible to see.

My 4 dogs love the granite rocks, exploring and jumping over and around them.

The views are stunning from Staple Tor, but you do have to watch out for flying red flags, as you can see in the distance. This means the army is practising manoeuvres using live ammunition. Therefore, you are not allowed to pass beyond this point.

There is a published timetable of when the army will be carrying out its activities, so it is possible to walk beyond and into the danger zone.

After walking downhill, its time to cool off. Well for my 4 dogs.

Staple Tor is definitely one place worth a visit if you are travelling to Dartmoor National Park. Photos shot using a Huawei P20 Pro smartphone.
