Toptor, Taptor, Tapter, Tor Hill, Torhill, Thornhill
There are three prominent granite outcrops which, as the name suggests, are at the top of the hill. The granite here is bizarre, with lots of clitter to the north-west and fractured joints in the other outcrops. William Crossing makes a brief note in his 'Guide to Dartmoor'; "A short distance northward of Foale's Arrishes is Top Tor, or, as the natives call it, Tapter. That part of the common immediately around it is usually referred to as Tor Hill."
Eric Hemery quite rightly describes the views; they "Embrace the entire eastern highlands, westward across the Forest to North Hessary Tor, eastward to the Teign estuary and southward to Brent Hill."
As well as Torhill it seems Rowe uses 'Thornhill' as an aka for Top Tor "Leaving Widecombe-a smiling oasis in the desert- with all its natural attractions and olden associations, we shall proceed eastward by a road which mounts the hill in the direction of Heytor and Rippon Tor, where we shall again find ourselves among the ruder monuments of unrecorded antiquity, on the slopes of Thornhill or Top Tor". He also gives "Toptor-in the vernacular of the moormen Taptor."
