Little Hound Tor

This tor sits between the grand mass of Cosdon Hill and Hound Tor. It is only a few metres lower than Hound Tor as this area flattens slightly before rising again up to Wild Tor. Little Hound Tor also sits right next to Whit Moor Stone Circle making a popular spot for walkers. Its a lovely spot with great views over to Belstone Tor and Steeperton Tor in the west. Its a tricky spot to get to though, with the best routes coming down from Cosdon Hill (parking around Rawsley or South Zeal). No military areas around this tor.
