Crownhill Tor

Knackers' Knowle

This unremarkable tor, like others in the vicinity of Lee Moor, is out of the boundary of the national park. It's a collection of scattered granite across the hill, to the south of the Torrycombe Valley and Tory Brook, with a low outcrop on its summit.

Its summit views are dominated by the scarring of the china clay works; north to Lee Moor and Cholwichtown, south to Headon.

However, it is worth mentioning that the boundary stones near the tor are inscribed LM/1887 thought to be related to Lee Moor or another theory Lord Morley?
