Bellever Tor

Bellaford Tor

Bellever Tor is another recognisable granite tor, rising from the treeline of Bellever Forest. This fine, satisfying collection of outcrops are topped by a trig point with a plaque dedicated to the Creber Family, an avenue, and plenty of Bronze Age archaeology on the 2km walk from the car park at Postbridge.

It is one of the grandest rockpiles in this part of the moor, being described by Eric Hemery as "magnificent" and by William Crossing as a "fine cluster of rocks".

It is without doubt beautiful and the tor's modest height of 443m does not detract from the far-reaching views afforded here.
