Middle Tor, Devon


  • Located in Chagford, Devon, South West England, England
  • There are three tors on the northern fringe of Chagford Common. Kestor Rock is to the north west. Frenchbeer Rock is to the south east. Between them is Middle Tor which, we assume, is how it got its name
  • Start out from one of the car parking areas by Batworthy and Batworthy Corner and then head up onto the moorland. From Kestor Rock, you'll see Middle Tor below you
  • The views are magnificent. Look out for the National Trust's Castle Drogo and Gardens perched above the stunning Teign Gorge. You'll also see the 'gateway town' of Chagford beneath Meldon Hill
  • The huge dome of moorland to the south east is Hamel Down. The forest to your south is Fernworthy
  • Drop down to Frenchbeer Rock before heading back up the moor to Shovel Down Stone Rows. We've located all these points of interest on Google maps but always suggest you refer to the Ordnance Survey OL28 'Dartmoor' map for detail
  • We'd recommend cream tea on the tor :) Bring a flask of tea and scones, clotted cream and jam and take in the gorgeous views
