Visited with kind permission, this tor is supposedly named as such because, according to the landowner, from an angle it resembles a 'bee' (allow for some artistic licence on that explanation).
There is scant information on this small collection of multiple low-lying outcrops on the hill summit. Evidence of the name lies in the immediate area; to the north, there is Beetor Bridge, on the eastern slope lies Beetor Farm, and a way further Beetor Cross can be found perched on top of a hedge beside the B3212.
According to Dartmoor Crosses: "It is very likely that this cross was erected to mark the ancient Track from Exeter to Tavistock, in the days before the B3212 was built. However, there is another theory that the cross was erected to mark the scene of conflict between the invading Saxons and the local British Christians of the moor." The site of the cross is known as 'The Watching Place'.
