Little White Tor

Little Whit Tor

This non-granite tor sits below and to the west of White Tor and its location looks out onto West Devon, with Brent Tor most prominent in the distance.

Described by Hemery; "...its small, weathered companion pile, Little Whit Tor (1,375 feet), straddling the declining crest some three hundred yards above the Broadmoor enclosures. 'Little' in name but great in ruin..."

"The down, its crest covered by 'molehills', is comparatively featureless; a few small outcrops of border-rock lie below the clitter of Little Whit Tor and two small cairns are separated by a track..."
