Little Trowlesworthy Tor
Little Trowlsworthy Tor, Trolsworthy Tor, Little Tor, Trowlesworthy Tors
Situated on the South Moor, this splendid tor overlooks the Whitehill Yeo China Clay Works which dominate the southerly view. However, the views elsewhere are excellent, as is the abundance of interest surrounding the tor.
William Crossing, in Guide to Dartmoor; "We shall now make our way from the Trowlesworthy antiquities to the tors that rise above them. The lower one is Little Trowlesworthy Tor, and from this an old wall, broken down in many places, extends northward to the Plym."
There is also a curious rounded stone, man-made, that Eric Hemery tells us of; "...it is the result of an over-ambitious nineteenth-century project to provide a base for a flagpole at Devonport Dockyard, the finished block proving too much for the transportation techniques of the day." It still exists in its original form today.
