North Park Tor

Lower Gidleigh Tor

This is a fine valley side tor that sits some way to the east of the main part of Gidleigh Tor in that part of the wood known as North Park.

Now enveloped in trees the tor consists of numerous shadowy outcrops on the slopes above and below a springy woodland path that threads its way high above the River Teign.

The tor is easily reached from the road at Gidleigh and by walking south along a section of the Mariner's Way before dropping into the wood where the tor rears up to the right.
