Little Oke Tor

Situated some 150 metres to the north of Oke Tor and immediately to the west of the track which links it to Knattaborough Tor, there can be found a quite separate but much smaller collection of outcrops. They present as a line of several low emerging piles stretched along the ridge with widely spaced jointing similar to that seen at its neighbours.

Whilst its more impressive neighbour dominates, this small tor is still interesting and it possesses a fine albeit small logan stone at SX 61153 90344, resembling a pancake which when climbed atop shows itself to be in the shape of a triangle. It logs under pressure and its diminutive size is probably the reason why it has never received any attention prior to this documentation.

We feel that due to its position away from the main tor it ought to be named 'Little Oke Tor'.
