Crowtorre, Crewtor, Crewtorre, Crowter, Croughtor
A quite magnificent and distinctive tor known as Crow Tor is perched on the slopes of a spur high above the West Dart River with its confluence with the small tributary known as Foxholes. The main outcrop is huge and consists of well-jointed granite, with noticeable geology in the shelter on the south-west side.
The views are very extensive and Hemery tells us that: "The southerly view from Crow Tor is striking: the Beardown Tors crest the ridge west of the river, while on the opposite side Longaford and Littaford Tors rise above the ancient oaks of Wistmans."
There is plenty of clitter around, thorough evidence of a much larger tor once on the hillside. The tor, with Little Crow Tor eastward, is surrounded by both Foxholes Water (Methern Brook) and the West Dart River, meaning that the only approach when water levels are high is from the north.
