Lower White Tor

Lower Whiten Tor, Little Whitten Tor, Beyonder Tor, Beeyonder Tor, Beeryonder Tor, Bearyonder Tor, Waydown Tor (Rowe)

A welcome sight after trudging through bogs to get to this tor, comprised of pleasant outcrops amid flat grass. Nice views of the West Dart Valley and Fernworthy Forest be be attained.

Hemery comments: "The highest rock, although not a balanced logan-stone, is likely to become one, for it is slightly movable on its pivot. There is a very small logan on the south-east side of the pile, and weathering on the west side gives the effect of pseudo-bedding. A larger logan-stone, though having but slight movement, is seen on the south side..."
