Hart Tor (Walkhampton Common)

Har Tor, Harter, Harter Tor

A granite outcrop, south-west of Princetown, nestled between Hart Tor Brook and the River Meavy. To the north, evidence of a disused rifle range.

A prominent feature from the road, Hemery describes it; "Hart Tor (approx. 1,250 feet), the beautiful and symmetrical pile that bestows its name upon the brook, is one of a number so called denoting the former haunt of the white hart; it is most striking when seen from the river below."
