White Hill Tor, Whit Hill Tor, Torrycombe Tor, Torry Combe Tor, Lower Whitehill Tor
This is a collection of scattered granite across the hill with a low outcrop on its summit. The location is dominated by the clay works on Lee Moor, but if you can blot out the glare from the exposed pits, you'll notice that the outcrops have a lot more to offer than can be seen from the road.
The lower levels of Whitehill Tor, below a bisecting access road, are much more of a delight but occasionally, when the outcrop has forced a clearing of the woodland canopy, there is a sharp reminder of your location, surrounded by the works. However, this little green valley is a real oasis. This section was called 'Lower Whitehill' by Paul Rendell in a Dartmoor News article, but we believe this to be an outlying part of the main summit rocks above. The lower levels are best viewed in late winter when the bracken has receded.
Whilst Ordnance Survey Maps mark the area as 'Whitehill Tor', the name of 'Torry Combe Tor' is sometimes used for the tor and was first introduced by William Crossing in his 'Guide to Dartmoor'.
