Monday, December 21

It was an overcast day late in the summer. My head was heavy from the previous night and so I decided to wile away the afternoon on Dartmoor. Bellever has an air of mystery and wildness, without a doubt. Humans have been living here for thousands of years, and the place is scattered with stone circles, ancient settlements and cairns. A pine forest lines the way up to Bellever Tor and the surrounding hills of Dartmoor. I walked through the forest without seeing another soul, and after much backtracking and disappearing paths, managed to find an old stone hut circle. I sat here, watching the heavy clouds roll in and my headache slowly fade. This is without doubt one of my favourite spots on Dartmoor.
