Little Lydford Tor

Some way to the north-east of Lydford Tor, you will come across a small outcrop, unremarkable at first, but with obvious jointing and size that are worthy enough to be included on this database.

It is an outcrop of broken rocks that are obscured by the tufts of long grass. The name of Little Lydford Tor seems appropriate given its proximity to its larger neighbour, beyond the wall.
