Beardown West Tor
Bearddown Tors, Bear Down Tors, Beara Down Tors, Beardon Tors, Beardown Hill, Bairdown Tor, Bare Down Tor
This tor is possibly the largest, if not definitely the highest, of the Beardown group that can be found on the west side of the hill and is visible from the Holming Beam car park. It has three military huts dotted on its slopes. A large tor of mostly grass covered rocks it gives some splendid views of the surrounding moor.
The Beardown Tors are a collection of nine outcrops, apparently, but four of them are most prominent. Despite popular OS maps marking these tors collectively as one entity, each outcrop is distinctively separate and for this database, we feel a little leeway is permitted in order to describe them.
One of the most easily recognisable groups of outcrops on the moor, they can be viewed from the B3212 and B3357 roads near Two Bridges. The best way to reach these four is from the car park at Holming (Omen) Beam.
