Nattor (Sheepstor)

Nat Tor

This private tor consists of a few small granite outcrops, with no real significant height. It is more a collection of exposed boulders rather than an obvious outcrop, but it suggests it was once a more impressive sight.

Hemery first mentions it: "Nattor Farm stands due south across the brook and almost equidistant from Yellowmead. The diminutive tor that gives its name to the farm stands immediately above it within the highest enclosure bordering the mine-road."

It can be viewed from Sheeps Tor should you not wish to seek permission to visit.
