Leusdon Tor

Not far from Logwell Rock but sufficiently detached to warrant its own identity this grand tor sprawls through the trees at the top of the small copse that William Crossing describes as Lizwell Wood.

It is a magnificent pile and likely neglected by the public because it lies outside of Open Access Land; in addition there is no hint of it on any old maps.

The name of Leusdon Tor seems appropriate since you can see the settlement of the same name through the trees.
