Sharp Tor (Chinkwell)
Sharpy Tor, Charbe Tor
First identified by William Crossing as standing up sharply from the moor, this magnificent rock stack stands on the south-west shoulder of the hill of the much better known Chinkwell Tor.
It is seen at its best from below on Thornhill Lane, a track that skirts the lower western side of Bonehill Down between Bonehill Rocks and Honeybag Tor.
Charbe Tor, a disputed tor, is later identified by Crossing in the original edition of 'Amid Devonia's Alps'. Some people place it at Bonehill Rocks or Holwell Rocks, but he tells us; "Thus a small pile of rocks, sometimes known as Sharp Tor, near Widecombe, is named on some maps Charbe Tor." Whilst this is invaluable evidence, it is not a small pile of rocks. But since Crossing also mentions the same tor in his Guide as residing in the same location above Widecombe, we believe this is the right outcrop and that Sharp Tor is also called Charbe Tor.
