Wray Cleave Wood Tor
To the rear of the Lewdowns Cottage ruins, you will find a badly neglected footpath beside a low grassy outcrop on the upper reaches of Wray Cleave Wood. It is an indicator, or appetiser, to the grand tor a short distance below. Descend the overgrown steps (care should be taken on these slopes), if you can find them on this forgotten right of way, and you will begin to discover more. The ground here now falls away sharply, the footpath is lost, and a quite magnificent tor is laid out before you.
There is a bewildering array of giant outcrops that stud the hillside here, none of which are visible from the A382 road below as they are all hidden under trees. The tor stretches from SX 7758 8434, just south of a small stream that tumbles down a re-entrant. Contouring the slopes as best you can, you can find a narrow gap between two large granite boulders, with a wedged rock above creating an arch.
At its southern extremities, at SX 7761 8426, the tor is more accessible, but no less impressive. This is a truly magnificent tor! Thanks goes to Max Piper once again for first noticing the rock piles here on old Ordnance Survey Maps.
