Lydford Tor, Devon


  • Located in Two Bridges, Devon, South West England, England
  • Lydford Tor is one of a cluster of rocky outcrops near Wistman's Wood in the centre of Dartmoor National Park. The Lych Way, an ancient travel route, passes under the tor on its way from Bellever Forest to the pretty village Lydford. The views south from Lydford Tor are magnificent
  • The Beardown Tors dominate the moorland in the foreground. Longaford Tor is the chunky tor to the east. Great Mis Tor is impressive to the west. The high south plateau of Dartmoor National Park rolls south. Note the sea by Plymouth and on the South Devon coast when looking south east
  • To visit, we'd recommend starting from the car parking area at Holming Beam and Long Plantation. Cross the bridge and head up to the closest Beardown Tor with its two army huts. You'll connect with a wide grass track that heads up to Lydford Tor. You can also walk in on the Lych Way or via the path that follows the leat from the Two Bridges area. This leat runs up the western side of the West River Dart. We've also walked in from Devil's Tor as part of a much larger, looping walk
  • From Lydford Tor, we'd suggest you head north to see the Beardown Man Standing Stone
