Free Vixen Tor
The public inquiry into the proposal to create public rights of way at Vixen Tor on Dartmoor resumes at Princetown Village Centre this tuesday at 10 am.
What is it about the owners of Vixen Tor? Here we have the highest free standing rock on Dartmoor, a spectacular tor resembling from some angles the Sphinx.
For generations it was free to access for ramblers, riders and rock climbers. Then the new owners purchase it and immediately deny access to the public.
Shamefully, despite a massive weight of public evidence at a public inquiry, it was not deemed to be access land under the CRoW Act. The spineless Dartmoor National Park Authority could have then made an Access Order, but chose not to.
Now this fine rocky giant of the Moor is surrounded by barbed wire and hideous “Keep Out” notices.
But there is one more chance to gain access to this impressive Dartmoor landmark. The public inquiry to establish rights of way by footpath to Vixen Tor resumes THIS tuesday.
So if you can provide evidence that you ever freely visited Vixen Tor, please go to the inquiry. Or email the County Council via their website to post evidence.
THERE SHOULD BE NO FORBIDDEN TORS IN THE DARTMOOR NATIONAL PARK
