G/DC-001, High Willhays – 621m, 4 points
Drive to Okehampton then head South onto Dartmoor passing over the A30. Follow the road to the end and at the camp turn left then immediately right, don’t go over the bridge. Follow this road until the end where there is parking space for probably a dozen cars at SX 590 912.
The path South from the parking is obvious passing West Mill Tor and Yes Tor. We took a diversion on the way down to have a look at Yes Tor which has some interesting construction on the top.
Setting up the station on top of High Willhays, I soon had ten contacts in the log.
The walk back to the car was uneventful, a nice break on a long journey down to Cornwall.
