A wonderful granite tor overlooking the forest known as Soussons and the hill called Challacombe Down, as well as the various mine workings on the western side of the hill, collectively the last working on Dartmoor. Easily accessible as it is close to the B3212, Bennett's Cross and the Warren House Inn.
The area is abundant with disused mine workings at the Birch Tor, Vitifer and Golden Dagger Mines. These extensive workings are a scar on the landscape despite blending in with the heather in this side of the moor. The website 'mindat.org' suggests; "An open cast mine on the eastern side of the valley with several adits. This was possibly the largest and most productive of the moor tin mines."
The Ordnance Survey Maps suggest that the tor is a summit, but this is not true and the outcrops sit some way below the marked tumulus, or barrow. However, the tor itself is very photogenic; the multiple outcrops contain fabulous horizontal jointing and the many outlooks attainable from here are well worth a visit.
