Little Cox Tor

Little Cocks Tor, Reep's Tor

This is a rather scruffy looking tor on the lower north-west slopes of Cocks (Cox) Tor, not too far above the road that leads to Higher Godsworthy.

There is a mass of lichen spotted scattered rock on this hillside but it is not granite. There are also two smaller outcrops above this point which seems to be the summit of the main part of the tor.

Eric Hemery; "..while protruding from the north-west shoulder and resembling a great buttress when seen from below, is the trap-rock pile of Little Cocks Tor (approx. 1,250 feet), not mentioned by Crossing. The view, despite the tor's modest elevation, is surprisingly good.." He also remarks that, according to Coxtor Farm, it was spoken as "Reep's Tor".
