Sanduck Grove Tor

There is a small but quite striking isolated tor that is located in Sanduck Grove about a mile to the north-west of Lustleigh.

Forming a compact group of huge boulders above the public footpath leading through the wood to the County Road, the tor reaches a height of some 5 metres on its west side.

It is of unique appearance, having a conspicuous wide split through the core of the granite mass, and this grand sight is readily visible from the aforementioned public right of way.
