Little Crow Tor
Situated extremely close to Crow Tor on its eastern side are two small granite outcrops. Due to Little Crow's proximity to the parent tor, it is hardly recognisable as a separate tor in its own right. However, Eric Hemery states; "The smaller rock-pile was pointed out to the Rev. Bray by the moorman John Hannaford, as Little Crow Tor or 'Croughter', a name I feel it would be sensible to revive. On the south-west side of the pile an immense break-away has taken place, and part of a rock canopy, now up-ended, rests against another mass."
Whilst this is the outcrop Hemery was referring to, it should be noted he has misquoted Mrs. Bray, who attributed the alternative name 'Croughtor' to Crow Tor and not Little; "To these succeeded, towards the north, Crow, or Crough-tor, and Little Crowtor."
There is plenty of clitter around, thorough evidence of a much larger tor once on the hillside. The tor, with Crow Tor westward, is surrounded by both Foxholes Water (Methern Brook) and the West Dart River, meaning that the only approach when water levels are high is from the north.
