Collard Tor

On the edge of the disused Wotterwaste China Clay Works, this large area of granite outcrops and clitter creeps down the hill to the village of Wotter. There is a path across the top, but it is an enjoyable scramble from the bottom.

Hemery says of this pile; "The southernmost tor, consisting of two rock-piles, is Collard Tor (approx. 825 feet), which is well worth visiting as the frontier-post of an oasis in an industrial desert. It is obvious from the rocky summit and the great clitter below that this was once a striking pile."

The WH/B boundary stone is near the summit of the tor as a possible Wotter House Bounds as proposed by Milestone Society member Mark Fenlon.
