Hedge Down Tor
This is a quite distinctive tor that is set on Open Access Land as marked on OS maps to the east of the much better known Honeybag Tor on the hill above Hedge Barton. A gate immediately east of Honeybag Tor provides access.
It consists of two main piles and was described for the first time as far as we aware by Tim Jenkinson in an article on 'Nameless Rockpiles' in Dartmoor Magazine number 58 in Spring 2000.
At the time Tim speculated possible names of 'Hedge Down' or 'Hedge Barton Tor'. Around the same time the name 'Hedge Tor' appeared in the 'Book of Manaton'. The smaller southern pile is part involved in an old wall. The lower and much larger pile at SX 734786 extends downhill for around 100 metres and gives rise to a sprawling rock field above the farm. The tor here is best viewed from the eastern slopes of Chinkwell Tor.
