Dartmoor offering last of the summer sunset
Bookmark and Share
Summer officially ends on September 21st at the autumn equinox and those keen to catch a sunset before the nights become longer than the days may wish to put on walking boots and take the chance on Dartmoor.

On September 18th, a guided walk run by national park ranger J Whiting will set off to Yes Tor, which is 2,032 ft above sea level.

The trek sets off from Okehampton Moor at 17:30 BST and lasts for three and-a-half hours, with a panoramic view from the top providing the setting from which the sun can be seen disappearing below the horizon.

Warm outdoor jackets may be useful on the trip as the elevated position, potential for inclement weather and colder temperature as autumn encroaches could all call for good clothing.

The guide also states participants should bring a torch.

Yes Tor is the second highest point in the south of England and one of just two over 2,000 ft above sea level, with the other being nearby High Willhays at 2,038 ft, a few hundred yards along the ridge.
