Cold Moor Tor
Tucked on the slope under Holwell Farm on the west side of the Becka Brook at the south end of Hound Tor Combe, Cold Moor Tor is a small rockpile that was noted on the perambulation of the Ilsington Beating the Bounds in July 2019 and visited shortly thereafter. The name it seems is linked to that of 'Homer Cold Moor' which is shown on the 19th Century Tithe Map for an enclosure in the area.
The main outcrop is compact and is now quite cramped under a spreading tree that has grown robustly over the rocks (there is a large broken section below with huge flat topped boulders one of which forms a small overhang with a low cave beneath). The tor here is clearly shown on old OS maps but not named. From near the top there are some superb views to the east on the opposite side of the Combe where from left to right Holwell and Little Holwell Tors, Haytor Rocks in the distance, Emsworthy Rocks and Saddle Tor can all be seen, creating a dramatic and thrilling vista.
Cold Moor is quite distinctive when seen from the south sat upon Sybil Ball's wooden bench on the gentle slope above Emsworthy Mire. Eric Hemery remarks that the 'Holwell enclosures contain an amazing wilderness of granite, with miniature tors by the half dozen in every field linked by intertwining hoary walls' with perhaps Cold Moor being the best of them.
