Bagga Tor

Bagga Tor is sat in a bit of a valley between White Tor and Standon Hill, however with the Lych Way passing right next to it there is a fair bit of footfall for this modest tor. To the west and north there is a pretty steep drop off towards Brousentor Farm, however the other side has a more gentle slope across to the Lych Way. The views to the north and west are excellent, with Brent Tor and Cornwall in sight. There is a simple car park at the bottom of this tor, making an ascent very simple indeed. Bagga Tor lies right on the edge of the Merrivale Firing range, so beware of flags on firing days.
