Huccaby Tor

Huckaby Tor

A small tor situated near the B3357 road and best accessed from the gate south-west. Good views across to Down Ridge and Hexworthy.

Hemery elaborates; "East of Cox Lake is Huccaby Tor (approx. 1,150 feet), where Dart's north valley side marks its last rise before the long, undulating decline to Dartmeet. The tor consists of four small piles. The two largest in order of size are the central and north piles... on the summit rock, a basin which can no longer retain water due to the rock's movement since it formed."
