Wistman’s Wood, Black a Tor Copse and Piles Copse

After posting my pictures of Piles Copse yesterday I had a look back through my photographic files today for some pictures of Wistman’s Wood and Black a Tor Copse which I referenced in my blog.

The next three pictures are of Black a Tor Copse which nestles on the hillside under Black Tor beside the West Okement river a couple of miles south of Meldon Reservoir.

I blogged about Piles Copse here and posted a photo set here but nevertheless here is a new picture of Piles Copse below Sharp Tor.

Dartmoor’s three very special high altitude oak woods – nothing like them anywhere else!
