The church of St. Michael de Rupe dominates this non-granite outcrop and it stands out from many vantage points on the western edge of the moor. This is the most westerly tor in the National Park. A car park nearby provides easy access.
Crossing tells us of the traditions associated with this conical hill; "Several traditions of the kind are usually found in connection with buildings placed in curious situations attach to the church on this hill. One says it was intended to build it at the foot of the tor, but the Evil One came continually by night and carried the stones that the builders had placed during the day up the steep sides of the hill to its crest. At length it was deemed expedient to let Satan have his way, and the church was erected on the site he had chosen for it..."
At grid ref SX 4718 8030, there can also be sought a grand crag of rock lying low down on the south side of the main Brentor massif. A small tor in its own right but not of granite.
