Long Cleave Tor
On the steep valley side above the stream at Hawkmoor, a massive wall of granite emerges from the hillside, nicknamed 'The Great Wall' on account of its elongated appearance. The tor is even shown as a large outcrop on OS maps but is not named until now. A quite magnificent woodland tor for East Dartmoor, the steepest section of the wall is at least 20ft tall.
A track meanders its way from below where glimpses of the tor can be viewed. Given the difficult terrain below the tor, we advise that you descend from the top on the north side where the going is easier.
Once at the top, there is a wonderful view of Shaptor Wood extending towards Stonelands; the summit is covered in moss and the ledge is a perfect place for a picnic. The tor is in the vicinity of some land once called 'Long Cleave' on the Tithe Map for the Parish of Bovey Tracey, so this seems the most appropriate appellation.
