Hunt Tor

Hunters Tor, Woodcock Hill

Hunt Tor, located on a spur on Woodcock Hill, is a modest outcrop of granite with great views of Great Links Tor. A track runs westward from Gren Tor to enable access.

Hemery sets the scene; "...and the other, Hunters Tor (1,846 feet), rising from the higher west side of the basin. A much weathered rock-ridge of one main and several small exposures, it shows marked horizontal jointings and diagonal partings."

In addition, there is a wonderful logan stone which, according to Hemery, is unrecorded, unlike its neighbour Gren Tor. It is rather flat and apparently still rocks.
