Curtery Clitters

Curtory Clitters

A couple of hundred metres south-west of the area marked on the OS map, this is a large clitter field, with no tor, in a crescent shape. The clitter is west of Black-a-ven Brook and, just below the military road to Dinger Tor, is best seen from below.

William Crossing first mentions the clitter in his 'Guide to Dartmoor', but calls it 'Curtory Clitters'. Inexplicably, Ordnance Survey Maps mark these rocks as a water feature nearer New Bridge, over the Black-a-ven Brook, and a bit too far north of their actual location.
