Kelly Mine Tor

This is a fair-sized tor situated close to the old mine building at Kelly in the woods above and to the east of the A382. Whilst the tor can be seen from the nearby public footpath, it resides in private land.

It consists of several huge outcrops culminating in an overhang at the highest outcrop at SX 7969 8183. Given its close proximity to the mine, it is surprising that it has not received more attention.

Kelly Mine Tor further extends to the south towards Warm Pit Copse reaching its conclusion at a magnificently perched boulder near a manmade pond at SX 7969 8177.
