Little Leeden Tor

Little Leedon Tor, Leedon Tor Outlier Stack

This tor is a small but nonetheless distinctive outlier of the main Leeden Tor group well down to the west.

It forms a tall isolated and compact pile with good horizontal jointings in the granite face.

The outcrop here gives rise to a fine clitter field below that is worthy of a separate status to the more impressive and notable piles on high.
