This Tor is worth the walk only because of the interesting construction at its' peak. Here you will find a Television Station mast and Trig point and when you reach the top you will appreciate why they are situated here. This Tor has commanding views of Plymouth and surrounding towns of Princetown & Tavistock. The construction of the mast is impressive and the cables supporting the mast are as thick as your arm. Hollow Tor (to the North West) is well worth the detour if you wish to take a more circular walk home.
