Huccaby Tor

Despite this tor sitting a hundred or so metres from the B3357 this one is a little tricky to get to. The nearest parking is either Dartmeet or at Dunnabridge Pound, both of these will involve a walk along the busy road. Once near there are paths straight up to the tor from the road. If not you can approach from Laughter Tor however the paths can disappear or take you off away from the tor rocks. There are two bronze age settlements near this tor called Huccaby Ring and Outer Huccaby Ring, both are tricky to find on the ground however they are marked on the OS maps. There are no military areas near this tor.
