Leg Instruction
1Park your car in one of the 'pull-ins' along the Whiteworks Road (SX 602713).
2Follow the wall up until it intercepts the track that leads to the north and South Hessary Tor.
3From South Hessary Tor there are tracks across the rough ground that will eventually lead you to a 'trig point' on the unnamed hill. Ground all around this trig point is boggy!
4Now head to the west for around half a mile and eventually Cramber Tor will come into view. On a nice day it's a wonderful place to stop and spend some time before heading back.
5Make your way back to the trig point and from there in an easterly direction over the hill back to the track and finally back to the car.
