Longash Tor

Longash Hill Tor

Private Land but accessible with a short wander from the bridleway below it. A few collections of granite here, all with wonderful views of Vixen Tor across the Walkham.

Another strange omission from both Hemery and Crossing in their reports of the area given how obvious this tor is. Tim Jenkinson finally put this right in 1996 and dubbed it 'Longash Tor', which seems appropriate.

It is also spoken of as Longash Hill Tor.
