Vag Hill Tor
Vag Hill, Warren House Pit, Hidden Valley
Vag Hill occupies a large proportion of grid square SX 6772 and part of SX 6872 but is not shown by this or any name on Ordnance Survey maps. On the lower south west slopes of the hill there is a little known secluded tor that is well hidden in what Eric Hemery describes as a 'natural trough or pit'.
The author comments that the most conspicuous outcrop is a "former tor", a compact split stack of square-faced granite blocks set above the rectangular ruin of a former warrener's house, this being the part that is visible from afar on the other side of the River Dart below Combestone Tor.
Tim Jenkinson describes the area twice first in 2000 as part of his 'nameless rock piles' article and again in 2013 where he introduces the possible name of 'Vag Hill Tor'. In addition to the aforementioned outcrop he identifies at least another three piles scattered on the slope but mostly obscured by the trees below, the most impressive of which is a large split crag lying little more than 60 metres to the east, with another small outcrop nearby. We have a monster tor here shrouded in trees its piles spilling downhill towards the river. A path to the rocks leads up from the riverbank at approximately SX 6782 7222 and this is probably the easiest point of access when walking south from Dartmeet. Rarely visited the higher part of the ruined tor is quite the perfect place to sit awhile and enjoy the solitude, although it is perhaps better to go in the winter or early spring when the vegetation is low.
