Combeshead Tor, Combe Tor
Combshead Tor is a fine large tor situated high above the brook of the same name, which, with Cuckoo Rock below, forms an impressive backdrop across the shallow valley when seen from Deancombe Rocks.
It is a shame that some of the most notable Dartmoor authors have failed to describe these sprawling outcrops, their attention drawn to the Hingston Hill antiquities and Deancombe Valley; and whilst these features are very interesting, the tor has its charm which appears to have been overlooked in favour of its views and surroundings.
Sat above a massive rock field the arrangement of outcrops at Combshead create natural windbreaks, dominating the onlooker when viewed at close quarters. Some of the grotesque shapes created by nature have animal traits but one particular outcrop has what resembles a heart etched into it, although this is more than likely natural.
