Ock Tor, Oak Tor, Hoo Tor, Hock Tor
High up above the River Taw, Oke Tor is a large granite tor on the ridge from Belstone Common to the north, the conclusion of the ridge being at Okement Hill southward.
Hemery describes it, in High Dartmoor; "The ridge rises slightly to Ock Tor (1,500 feet), its affinity with E. Ockment country expressed by the near proximity of the river's head and the upper reach spread out below. The tor has three piles, of which the southern is the largest, with a tremendous break-away on the south-west side."
"The head of the pile, weathered into a pseudo-laminated, concave mass, resembles the edge of a giant rock basin; a lesser, though still large break-away lies on the south side of this pile, where a military shelter has been built." The repetitive horizontal jointing in the tor is remarkable.
