Hexton Tor

This is a small outcrop sitting on the side of Shell Tor/Lee Moor, above the village of Cornwood. There is a bit of clitter and then the small outcrop itself which gives a decent foreground for photos. The only issue is the background tends to be the horrid china clay works around Lee Moor, best to turn around and look towards Shell Top or the Trowlesworthy Tors! The walk here is a bit tricky, but the best way is from Blackaton Cross following the main path, once near the location, to the south, you will reach a leat/stream, head to the south east past Hexton Tor, for about 100 metres ish and then find a crossing, and head back around. Or there is a place on the OS map marked Cross Dyke, this has some rocks, which when the water is low enough, can be used as stepping stones. There are no military firing ranges here.
