Gotterknap Tor, Gotetorre, Gut Tor, Cut Tor
Comprising three main outcrops and a trig pillar further up the hill, this is an excellent granite tor situated close to a small car park near the Scout Hut. Below, to the south, lie the ruins of Ditsworthy Warren House, one of the locations used in Steven Spielberg's film "War Horse".
Hemery tells us of Gutter Tor; "Seen from certain angles, the tor resembles a huge cleft, or cut; 'Gutter' might therefore be a corruption of 'Cut Tor'; alternatively, as water has been leated to Gutter Mires by the tinners, and 'gutter' is the term often (and logically) used on south Dartmoor for a leat..."
Atop the tor, there is a large rock basin, containing a drainage slot, described by Richard Hansford Worth in "Worth's Dartmoor"; "The basin is about 34 inches long, it is difficult to define the point at which the basin ends and the channel begins, its extreme width is 22 inches and it is 10 inches in depth at its centre."
