Bell Tor

Bell Tor is another of the tors in a long line on this side of Dartmoor, sitting between Bonehill Rocks and Chinkwell Tor it has good views to the east and south as well as a good vista down to Widecombe in the Moor. There are plenty of car parks around Bonehill Rocks meaning only a quick walk is needed to reach the summit. This tor is a fairly standard tor for Dartmoor with a decent granite stack at the summit. There are no firing ranges near this tor.
