Brimhill Tor

William Crossing, when describing the scene upstream of the Tavy from the Power Station; "Between this clam and Horndon Bridge are some fine crags. One of these we may see as we look up the stream. This is High Tor, the others being Fox Tor and Brimhill Tor." With time passing, the trees have dwarfed the crags and the only way to see them is to enter the woods.

Brimhill Tor is situated just within Private Land at the end of Brimhill Lane. At first this appears to be a scruffy pile covered in vegetation but further exploration reveals an extensive tor with many outcrops cascading down to the river below.

Although this is deemed to be on Private Land we saw no signs indicating it was forbidden to visit, but proceed with caution observing signage if in evidence.
