Kilmar Skyline and 12-men's Moor from Ridge

The peaks of Kilmar (the longest tor on Bodmin Moor), Hawk's Tor (on the left) and Trewortha (just off picture on the right) provide a dramatic backcloth to 12 Men's Moor, where local commoners have grazing rights. The moor has important industrial and Bronze Age artifacts in good condition and is popular with walkers.
