Parklands Tor

Residing within the private land of Woodlawn and Parklands is this impressive tor with multiple granite outcrops, the highest being visible from the minor road that weaves its way from the top of Rudge Hill to Pethybridge. This section is split from the lower by a track which leads into the woodland behind.

First espied by Max Piper in 2018 the tor can be seen from the south side stretching down the hill from the summit rocks to a grand outcrop, and definitely the most impressive here: a huge block sitting precariously above the driveway to Parklands which shows signs that it has been cut, more than likely to create a route to the aforementioned house situated below.

This fine tor deserves some recognition. It is one of Lustleigh's most spectacular and although there is no public access the majority of it can be seen from the lane and the summit rocks from the entrance drive. Parklands Tor is particularly beautiful in late winter and early spring when you can observe a proliferation of daffodils.
