Eventually you come up onto the moor and we managed to leave the path and go straight up (for me) a rather steep hill; we did discover that of course there is a path which is not quite so steep! We lunched in the shadow of Scary and Belstone Tors at the Nine Maidens (a stone ring); and then walked (I staggered as I have rubbish socks and had sore feet) back down to Belstone and a well deserved beer in the pub there. I have attached a link to a rather nice descripton of the nine maidens and the folklaw attached to them. http://www.devonperspectives.co.uk/belstone_ninemaidens.html
Belstone is probably our nearest access point to the moor and there is lots of walks you can do from there. You do need to be fairly careful as there is a military firing range close by, but you can check the firing schedule on-line so you know which bits you can access and which bits you can't. They don't seem to fire much on this bit of the moor anyway. Seems like we have quite a few walks to do up there now which will be lovely.
