Hart Tor (Walkhampton Common)

Hart Tor is a kind of unassuming tor hidden away between South Hessary, Cramber and Black Tors. It is another tor easily reached from the parking spots along the B3212 Princetown to Yelverton road. It is surrounded (like nearby Black Tor) by cairns, mining history, settlements and stone rows. There is also an old military rifle range to the north used back in the 1800’s. Apart from the 19th century one there are no firing ranges near this tor.
