Green Tor

Gren Tor, Grantor

East of Bleak House on the Rattle Brook, this tor is indeed green, with grass growing atop the outcrop. It is situated on the western flank of Amicombe Hill.

Eric Hemery: "So relatively high is this north-west area of Dartmoor, due to the 'great tilt', that this little tor 'breaking out of the hillside' stands twelve feet higher in elevation than the majestic Great Mis Tor. There are two piles, rounded and much grass-grown, giving the tor its name."
