Fordsland Ledge

Forsland Ledge, Foresland Ledge

Sat on the south-western edge of the High Willhays plateau, a low outcrop with a cairn and two military huts. Great views of the West Okement River below.

Eric Hemery; "From Dinger Tor the high valley side rises to Fordsland Ledge (1,900 feet), where a cohesive tor remnant stands on the brow, or fore-part, of the hill culminating above in High Willes (Redaven Brook). The enormous clitter fanning out below the ledge points to the former existence on it of a tor of great magnitude."
