Lower Ball Tor

Another ruined tor can be seen at the northern end of Caseley Cleave but this resides in private farmland. It has a central huge flat topped outcrop with giant broken boulders beneath. More of the tor extends uphill through trees and bushes.

Please note, this outcrop was visited back in 2016 when access was unclear. It has now been confirmed that NO ACCESS is afforded to this site and you should respect the wish of the current landowner.
