Lower Foxworthy Tor
Lustleigh Cleave is a haven for impressive granite tors, outcrops, rocks and boulders that are nestled within sometimes claustrophobic woodlands where sunlight struggles to break through the canopy of trees. That said, the natural beauty of this rocky landscape led William Crossing to choose the Cleave as one of his Gems in a Granite Setting.
Below the trio of tors called Hunter's, Foxworthy and Raven's lies an area of broken granite outcrops on the steep, wooded hillside above Foxworthy Farm. Marked but not named on some maps as an outcrop of rock, there are two modest piles atop dense clitter that appear to have escaped the Dartmoor Literature until Tim Jenkinson visited them in 2012.
Accessing Lower Foxworthy Tor is easiest from the path between Horsham Steps and Foxworthy below hugging the field boundary where, to your right, you can catch a glimpse of the shadowy rockpiles high up in the trees. As beautiful as this area is, its bottom carpeted with daffodils in late winter, you should be warned that the slopes can be treacherous and that care must be taken.
