Shavercombe is a modest tor consisting of one main outcrop amid scattered granite boulders. It has some nice granite shapes for its low stature and is worth a look if you happen to wander in this area.
However, access can be difficult because the River Plym acts as a barrier on the western side, but whichever way you choose to get here, you will be rewarded with solitude and complete isolation.
William Crossing describes it in his 'Guide to Dartmoor'; "Shavercombe is one of those delightful little valleys which the rambler on Dartmoor meets with occasionally, where a mountain ash or an oak find shelter, and where ferns grow abundantly. As we make our way downward its beauties speedily begin to reveal themselves. Ere we have gone far the stream falls over a high rock forming a charming cascade when rains have swollen its volume. Below this and quite close to the deep combe, is the tiny Shavercombe Tor, and near it a small pound with hut circles."
