Scramble to the summit of Rough Tor, the second highest point in Cornwall, and take-in the amazing 360 degree views - it is possible to see to both the Atlantic North Coast and the English Channel of the South Coast as well the surrounding moorland strewn with the remains of a thousand years of history.

First farmed over 4000 years ago by bronze age settlers Bodmin Moor is of one the last great unspoilt areas in the South West and much of its prehistoric and medieval past remains untouched by the passing of the centuries.

The Moor is dominated by dramatic granite tors which tower over the sweeping expanses of open moorland. Marshes and bogs on the high moor drain into shallow moorland valleys before the rivers cross onto softer shales around the Moor and carve themselves deep river valleys, providing shelter for rich, damp oak woodland.
