Eastern Tor – Grid ref: SX 584666 – Height 333m a.s.l.

This tor is quite beautiful in surroundings but hard to explain as to its’ exact location therefore the grid reference is read from the spot height 333m a.s.l. Eastern Tor has been included in this guide because of tis’ name rather than its’ size. Found just off a very wide path that contours around its’ peak with great views of Hen tor and the Plym valley. The whole area is worth a visit for the history that can be found in the form of dried-up leats, tin-workings stone rows, cists, cairns & Bronze Age settlements.

East Mill Tor – Grid ref: SX 599899 Height: 513m a.s.l.

East Mill Tor is located well inside the Okehampton firing range. Check firing times before proceeding to this tor.

Feather Tor – Grid ref: SX 535741 – Height 313m a.s.l.

Feather Tor can be found on Whitechurch Common, as part of the gentle ridge line forming Barn Hill, Feather Tor and Heckwood Tor. An unassuming tor from its’ approach via Barn Hill, it has some interesting rock formations (and a rare dartmoor tree!) Feather Tor provides an easy and enjoyable walk, which can be readily accessed from several car parks on the B3357 from Tavistock. This Tor is certainly recommended as an introductory walk onto the moors.

Flat Tor is located just on the eastern-fringe of the Merrivale range danger area.

Located on the northern shoulder of Crane Hill. Fox Tor shares its name with that of the locally famous Foxtor Mires, an exceptionally boggy marsh land that has few crossing points that will keep you dry.

Fur Tor – Grid ref: SX 588830 – Height 572m a.s.l.

Fur Tor is one of the most remote tors on Dartmoor. Set deep into the Okehapton range, this Tor should only be challenged with good planning and confident map work. The Tor by tor OS grid reference has been taken at the OS spot height.
