Crownhill Tor

This is one of the rare tors that sits outside of the national park. Due to the china clay works at Lee Moor, this one, alongside Blackalder Tor and Whitehill Tor all sit out of the boundary. They all can be bagged in a quick 30 minute walk as they sit around the village of Lee Moor. This tor has views over the industrial apart of south Dartmoor, with the Clay works surrounding this place, especially to the west, north and south. This outcrop is fairly small however it can easily seen and found, leaving the road to the east of Whitehill Tor, along the obvious track and up to the summit. There are no military areas near this tor.
