Hen Tor, Devon


  • Located in Sheepstor, Devon, South West England, England
  • Visit the south west section of Dartmoor National Park and you'll see Hen Tor rising like a miniature volcano from the flank of the high south moors. In the centre of English Heritage's Upper Plym Valley, a yomp to Hen Tor is a great way to get to know this part of the National Park. Isolated and sited above an expanse of clitter, it reminds us of the much larger Fur Tor in the north of the Park
  • The views are big from the top of the tor. The high moors rise to the east. On top are 492 and Shell Top. Below Hen Tor, to the west and north west are the River Plym and Drizzle Combe area
  • Hen Tor is in Hentor Warren. As the name suggest, rabbits were farmed in the area for their meat. There are numerous warrens in this section of Dartmoor. Headland Warren and Farm, in the heart of the moors, is perhaps the National Park's most famous warren
