Lower Hartor Tor

Lower Hart Tor, Lower Har Tor, Lower Harter Tor, Harter Tors

An impressive collection of large granite boulders above the River Plym. It is best accessed from the scout hut below Gutter Tor or from Whiteworks as crossing the river at other points could prove hazardous.

As said in Guide to Dartmoor, by William Crossing; "As we make our way down by the Plym through the great stream-work we pass under Lower Harter Tor. This is not a very large pile, but is, nevertheless, striking on account of the massive blocks of which it is composed. The ground around is strewn with granite."
