Middle Tor

This is a sizeable granite tor situated between Kestor Rock and Frenchbeer Rock, with a footpath running through the middle of the outcrops.

Hemery states; "..the strange, elemental lump of Middle Tor (approx. 1,330 feet). The main pile is compact, the hill-slope showing relatively little clitter; on the summit is a rock basin.. approximately seven inches deep and with a well-formed edge. A smaller, much-weathered pile stands on the south-east edge of the summit plateau.."

There is a very fine view down towards Chagford and Meldon Hill.
