Hatherleigh Tor

There is a hidden tor in trees on a noticeable spur to the north-east of Hatherleigh Farm.

Visible in winter from the road leading to the farm from Slade Cross it appears to consist of a small stack with a low fissured outcrop beneath on the southern edge of the small copse. It is likely that there are more rocks concealed and spilling downhill on the north side towards the A382.
