Lee Moor

Lee Moor is a vast area of southern Dartmoor, along with Ryders Hill it is one of the highest and more exposed areas. No walk here will be easy however the best way is from Shell Top following the grassy path. This trig point is sometimes called Langcombe Hill which is also in this area however this trig point is part of Lee Moor with Langcombe Hill being to the north east. Once here you will get far reaching views to northern Dartmoor as well as to nearer spots such as Redlake and Western White Barrow. If you like isolation then come here as you will not see another soul. If you are heading to Hen Tor from here then this is a tussocky trudge, however the views open up across to Sharpitor and Princetown as Hen Tor comes into view. There are no military firing areas around this area.
