Nan Tor

Cave / Rock Shelter


Nan Tor is perched above Wetton Mill Farm and the tearooms next door in the upper Manifold Valley. Shortest way up to the Tor is by heading down the track to Dale Farm, then keep looking to the right for a narrow scrubby path that heads steeply up through the trees and to the caves.

Although the Tor has two large south facing entrances, it is in fact
like a swiss cheese, tunnels everywhere. And while there's nothing tricky about them, some of them can come out on high-ish vertical rock faces, so it's best to be careful.
One of the caves has an open air chamber, where some of the roof looks to have collapsed.

Strange place. Great views down the valley to Thor's Cave.
