Little Kneeset

God knows where they come up with the names for these tors and hills. Little Kneeset sits in a bit of a hollow, with higher ground all around. My first look at it was from Fur Tor, I wasn’t sure which bit was Little Kneeset, however standing on it you struggle to realise that you were over 500 metres above sea level!! The ground around Little Kneeset is pretty saturated, the best approach I have found is from Cut Hill which was fairly dry. The top of the hill is just grass but if you head southwest from the top, as you head downhill you will find a rocky outcrop before hitting Cut Combe Water below. Little Kneeset sits within the Okehampton firing range and take notice of any warnings before setting out.
