Little Cadover Tor

There is quite a bit to this small tor near Cadover Bridge hidden in the trees. Rather than consisting of one main outcrop, Little Cadover Tor is comprised of large, scattered granite boulders, stretching down to the Plym below.

The highest part of this characteristic small tor resides on Private Land in a field beside a fence; however, most of the tor sits by the public footpath from West Down to Cadover Bridge.

Below the lowest rocks is a lovely swimming spot on the River Plym, away from the hustle and bustle of Cadover Bridge itself. Its popularity is gained from its easy access, deep pools and cascading waters, in which to wild swim.
