Far from being a natural tor, this one exists because of the quarrying of mankind. The small quarry has exposed this tor and as such has shown us how tors have been formed. It is therefore one of the most important tors on the moor as well as the youngest, even though it would normally still be underground. The small face of rocks show the tor formation theory of weathering before the rocks are battering by the winds and rain up here on Dartmoor. This theory was put forward by D. L. Linton in his theory of tor formation work. The tor itself sits in the current car park opposite the Two Bridges hotel and is easy to get to, although it is now covered by plenty of greenery and as such can easily be missed. There are no military areas directly near this tor.
