Badgers Holt Tor

Badger's Holt Tor

Just within the Parish boundary at Dartmeet there is a well-defined path from Badger's Holt leading north along the East Dart River. Here you will find a ruined tor in two parts that seems to have been overlooked by previous commentators.

The higher outcrop, at grid ref. SX 6733 7345 is the more distinctive.

Another one resides on the low slopes, at grid ref. SX 6729 7341, in woods not far from the start of the footpath on the east side.
