Plat Tor

This tor stands close to the old Piphole Linhay barn ruins on the slopes below the road and some 50-60 metres from it. There is a huge stack of rock here amid other large boulders.

The Tithe Map of Manaton shows the plot of land it sits on to be named "Plat", hence the name given seemed most appropriate.
