Hart Tor (Okehampton Common)

East Okement Farm Tor, Hartor

Situated beside the south-west wall to East Okement Farm, and at the end of a military road (OP 22), this is a small granite outcrop on a low hill. It gives its name to Hartor Hole and Corner as well.

Crossing from Row Tor Combe; "Away to the L. is seen the Belstone range, with the huge Cosdon behind; also Steeperton Tor, with Ock Tor to the L. of it, the latter, though a small pile, here showing itself to great advantage. Nearer to us the little Hart Tor is seen, on the common at the corner of the enclosure to which it gives name."

This was also named East Okement Farm Tor in 'Geology of the Country around OKEHAMPTON (1968)' by the Institute of Geological Sciences.
