Alex Tor

Alex Tor is a conical hill, 291 metres (955 ft) high, located in the west of Bodmin Moor in the county of Cornwall, England.[2]

At the summit of Alex Tor are granite rock outcrops and a large and intricate tor cairn. There are panoramic views from the summit plateau and other tors visible include: Rough Tor, Brown Willy, Showery Tor, Garrow Tor and Butter's Tor.[3]

Parking is possible on the lane running SW to NE past the tor, but not beyond the Private Road sign. From here it is an easy climb of less than 1 kilometre.[3]

On the western flank of the hill there are hut circles and the remains of an ancient farmstead.[2]
