Little Kes Tor

Little Kestor, Chagford Common

A small tor, come outcrop well to the north of the much better known Kes Tor Rock on the most northern part of Chagford Common.

With a sprawling albeit somewhat sparse clitter amid various antiquities and hut circles, the name of Little Kes Tor is sometimes used and has appeared by this appellation in Ken Ringwood's recent book on Dartmoor Tors, although it was Tim Jenkinson who first suggested the name back in the 1990s.
