Although over a 100 metres lower than Haytor, Bagtor occupies a prominent position with fine views.  It is now on new Access Land and can be reached by means of a path from Access Land on Pinchaford Ball - take the path south from Haytor top car park. At certain times of the year, access is restricted to the permissive path - general access is not allowed.  At the foot of the hill lies Bagtor House, once home of the Elizabethan dramatist and poet, John Ford, most famous for the dramatic play about incest between brother and sister; "Tis Pity she's a Whore".
