Longash Tor

This is a small tor, not too far from the Merrivale Stone circle overlooking the Walkham valley. There are a couple of small outcrops which can be easily reached by walking up from the path that heads south from Merrivale village alongside the Walkham. The views across to Vixen Tor are good as are those to the Staple Tors to the northwest. To make a nice circular walk drop back to the lane and head through the farm to the south before climbing up past Hucken Tor to Kings Tor. There are no military firing areas around this tor
