Bonehill Rocks Dartmoor, Devon Photography Locations #11

Bonehill Rock lies on the stunning Dartmoor National park area of Devon, not far from Widecombe on the moor, it lies at grid reference SX731774

Bonehill Rocks is semi large tor that covers a fairly big area as tors go, it lies at the top of Bonehill road, a small road that leads out of Widecombe in the moor towards Manaton..

There are lots of shapes, angles and different compositions that can be had from around the tor.

One of my favourite compositions involves shooting head-on towards the tor with both sides displayed and the dappled / bumpy moorland in the front.. this can often work well with a strong sunset behind the tors.  

Bonehill Rocks is a great place to visit for sweeping views of Dartmoor and the town and church of Widecombe in the moor seen clearly below, there are lots of smaller tors dotted around this location, which can be great to explore.

Good for: Unique composition involving one of Dartmoors famous tors, great for panoramic shots, just a great place to visit, Bonehill rocks is also used for climbing and bouldering a lot as well so sometimes you can get some shots of people climbing it for scale.

Difficulty: 1 min easy walk from the car parks, that surround the tor.

The tor is approx 3 mins from Widecombe in the moor or 15 mins from Bovey Tracey by car.

If in Widecombe in the moor, head towards Bovey Tracy just before the big steep hill turn left onto Bonehill road and follow it to the top.

If coming from Bovey Tracy, head towards Haytor Rocks, continue past them towards Widecombe in the moor, continue over the cattle grid and then after approx 0.5km fork right at the sign for Manaton and then take the first left (on a right-hand bend) the tor will then be on your left hand side..

Location: From the carpark walk upto the tor it's that's simple..
