Linch Tor, Lints Tor (Mudge)
It is Hemery we turn to for a description of this tor just off the summit above Wapsworthy Common; "Overlooking these features, as well as a huge area of in-country, is Lynch Tor (1,677 feet), which has flung down the west flank a fan-shaped clitter, dense enough to betoken a tor much larger than the remnant core suggests."
Crossing gives a suggestion for the name of the tor; "Lynch, g. A rough road, or track. The word usually indicates a track that is lower than the ground on each side of it - a cutting. It is possible that Lynch Tor, Walkham, and Lynch Down, Meavy, may both have been named after old tracks. Near the former runs the Lich Path, and through a cutting..."
It is a modest tor, possessing some fine weathered outcrops that are battered by the prevailing winds from the south-west. Indeed, for a Forest Boundary Perambulator who has walked from the south, Lynch Tor is the first substantial set of outcrops, offering some shelter from the elements, since Great Mis Tor some three and a half kilometres away.
