Comment

This tor is the larger, more dominant tor on the hillside, its' smaller but not insignificant cousin (Little Trowlesworthy) is set a few hundred metres North across a cluster of natural and mason-worked blocks. The Granite here is a pinkish/orange, common to this area of Dartmoor and the obvious reason why these stones were quarried. Easily reachable from Cadover Bridge this tor, and its' 'Little' cousin are highly rewarding for such a short walk.
