Mrs C and I went up onto Dartmoor for a stroll and a picnic. It was a fine day, and we stopped at Haytor Rocks. I’ve shared photos from here before, but the view varies with the seasons, and I always enjoy this spot. The light was perfect and we could see for miles, all the way to the sea on the horizon.

You may recognise the rocks from the cover of Accomplice to Murder. I believe it was also used for the cover of A Study in Stone, though it was pictured from further away and elements were added by the designer.

Many of these distinctive rocky outcrops have names in which Tor is a separate word, e.g. Hound Tor or Laughter Tor, but Haytor is one word.

I hope you enjoy the pictures.
