Eastern Tor

East Tor

Sitting on the hill north of Ditsworthy Warren House, this is a short outcrop with a wide area of scattered clitter. Best accessed from the Scout Hut below Gutter Tor to the north, it is a difficult tor to portray in one photograph.

Hemery tells us of the tor; "Eastern Tor (approx. 1,080 feet) - the (small) tor 'east' of Gutter. It consist of scattered large slabs and some horizontal badding, and amid its debris is a pound enclosing a single hut-circle.."
