Leigh Tor

Long Tor, Leghetorr

On a spur of the hill, this non-granite tor is situated nicely, with the Two Moors Way passing its north side. It is an impressive ridge of rock, stretching some way down the hill towards Spitchwick.

William Crossing (Guide p335-336) provides the alternative name of Long Tor for Leigh Tor which given that it stretches downhill to the east for some considerable distance is most appropriate.
