North of Devonport Leat, south of Hart Tor Brook, on the side of a hill, this is a short granite outcrop with a lonely feel to it despite not being too remote. Its position on the down makes it a challenging but rewarding tor to find when clag descends. The area is also used for so called 'dry training' where no live ammunition is used just blanks and pyrotechnics. There is no restriction on public access and the emphasis is purely on adventurous and tactical battle training.
Both Crossing and Hemery give little description of the tor itself, their attention rightly drawn to the views from its top. Hemery, however, describes; "a much weathered pile a hundred or so feet below the crest of the down..."
There is an inscription on the east side of the tor; the initials 'PH'. Its origin is unknown.
