Sittaford Tor

Sittaford Tor sits on the eastern side of Dartmoor near to Fernworthy Forest. It has a fairly flat summit area however the views from the top are extensive especially northwards. The Grey Wethers stone circles lie just to the east of the summit, 2 circles of 25 stones each. Sittaford Tor does not sit within a firing range however the Okehampton range is a kilometer to the west. There is a fairly straight forward path on the maps heading out from Postbridge to this tor and is a good way to get up here.
