Rat

I was out around The Staples yesterday when I came across a Moving Box that has been out since at least 2003. Not everyone who found it gave details of where and when they found it, but those who did show that Rat has been on the following journey: 16/11/03 Mistor Marsh, 02/04 The Staples, 06/04 Bla...

I stamped this on 30th January 1993 when I letterboxed as The Stamp Collector.

The swaling season came to an end on 31st March.

So you shouldn't in theory see smoke or a fire on the moor again before October! However, personally I wouldn't bet on it!!

I drove up to Wind Tor today. Swaling had taken place on the lower reaches of Wind Tor (Corndon side) and then on the way back past Hay Tor it could be seen on Bag Tor Down, Black Hill and Haytor Down.

Is it me but doesn't there appear to be more going on this year than in recent years?

I could see the smoke when on the A30, so it must have been a big fire.

Yesterday I was out and about around Belstone Tor. I could see that swaling had taken place between that tor and Scary Tor and a large area on the lower slopes of Corndon.

Going around Belstone Tor tomorrow. Hopefully no swaling going on or I will be finding some very misshapen pots!

Swaling - The Staples

There was lot of swaling going on today on the quarry side of The Staples. Anyone who has a box in that area may want to check on it's condition when next in the area.
