Higher White Tor

Higher Whiten Tor, White Tor, Whitten Tor

The ridge line from Crockern Tor heading north to Cherry Brook is capped by many fine tors, the highest of which is Higher White Tor. The summit is topped with a small cairn.

Hemery; "In the Longaford Newtake as it tops the ridge is a gateway, known as 'Forest Gate', opening upon the rocky foot of Higher Whiten Tor (1,722 feet). A large pile, its superiority in height over its sister tor is enhanced by its position on a conical hill on the crest of the ridge. Views are extensive, ranging from Cut Hill, Black Ridge, Whitehorse Hill, Quinters Man and Siddaford Tor in the north..."
