A Dewey is a hill or mountain in England or Wales over 500 metres (1,640 feet) in elevation, but below 2,000 feet (609.6 metres), with a relative height of at least 30 metres (98 feet). The list was compiled by Michael Dewey and published in his book Mountain Tables. There are 13 Deweys on Dartmoor (Beardown Tors is actually 3 tors/ ‘rock stacks’ with the westernmost ‘stack’ being the highest at 513 m). Five of the Dartmoor Dewey Hills are also Dartmoor 365 items.

This is another test walk page – the distance/ height/ items etc. all need correction..

I am trying to come up with a number of long distance wild camp ‘classic’ Dartmoor walks.. and I think this could be a great one!
