Little Heckwood Tor

Little Heckwood Tor is a huge low quarried rock it seems on its south side and hidden for much of the year in bracken and gorse.

It reaches no significant height but is quite impressive at close quarters presenting as a flat oblong granite outcrop some 250 metres or so to the south of the main tor.

South of the bedrock you can find a boundary stone for Sampford Spiney, with "SS" carved on it to represent the civil parish of the village. This can be found on the track just north of Pewtor Cottage at SX 5362 7348.
