Clay Tor

Clay Tor is a small tor of scattered rocks sitting on the side of the River Walkham behind Great Mis Tor. Its a tricky tor to get to as its sits on the opposite side of the river meaning a bit of rock hopping is needed at some point, unless you are coming from Roos Tor or White Tor. You could also arrive from Cocks Hill but that place is usually boggy and not much fun. That said if you drop down from Great Mis Tor to this one, the area around Greena Ball is pretty soggy also. The views aren’t much to write home about from this one, being low down with high ground in all directions, makes the only views really along the river in both directions, with White Tor in view to the west. You are inside Merrivale firing range here so beware of live firing times and red flags on Great Mis Tor should you want to visit.
