Pathfields North-West Tor
About 100 metres to the north-west of the ruined tor at Pathfields across an open field is an even more impressive rockpile set on the lower edge of a copse and just above the footpath that leads from Lustleigh to Lower Combe. It presents as a giant buttress of granite that towers above the onlooker with more boulders and outcrops extending through the trees on high.
The main part is a huge, compact bulk rising above the footpath that at this point passes through a gate beside a fine slotted gatepost. Clambering up the steep slope shows the true enormity of this silent beast that is partly hidden by trees and not seen until you are stood at its base.
A muddy and narrow public footpath connects this and Pathfields Tor in the lower part of the field and both are easily visible from this sometimes slippery path. Lustleigh is home to many impressive small tors but the North-West Tor at Pathfields is perhaps one of the best as it is so readily visible and admired.
