Vixen Tor enquiry date set
Bookmark and Share
A date has been set for the resumption of the public enquiry over access to a famous Dartmoor landmark.

Vixen Tor is at the centre of a dispute after a new landowner fenced off the site in 2003, with bodies like the Ramblers and the British Mountaineering Council arguing that those coming in hiking boots and waterproof jackets had been walking and climbing there for decades.

The hearing will reconvene on July 19th and 20th this year, after running out of time in November last year for all the evidence to be heard.

It had been scheduled to resume in December, but this was postponed due to severe winter weather.

The landowner is appealing against a decision by Devon County Council to allow two right-of-way footpaths to access the Tor.

Vixen Tor is one of many famous granite edifices in the Dartmoor National Park, with the loftiest of these being Yes Tor at 2,032 ft, the second highest point in the national park behind the adjacent summit of High Willhays.
