Croft Tor

This tor is another within the woodland to the west of Lustleigh, in this case its above Higher Hisley. To get to this one you want the path that runs from Higher Hisley into the woodland, not the path that leads to Gradner Rocks on the OS map, but the next one to the north west. Just as you pass through the gate into the woodland, look to the right along a garden boundary, and just inside the trees will be Croft Tor. This is a large outcrop which sits on the private garden boundary, however you can get to most of this tor without any problems. There are no views from here as the trees obscure the vista across to Black Hill and Trendlebere Down. There are no firing ranges near here.
