South Hessary Tor, Devon


  • Located in Princetown, Devon, South West England, England
  • The radio/TV mast by North Hessary Tor is visible from large parts of Dartmoor National Park. Built on high ground, it rises above Princetown. Less well-known, south east of Princetown, is South Hessary Tor. On the side of a major track that takes you onto the National Park's southern moors, South Hessary Tor is very easily accessible. We've positioned the tor on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its location. Browse our 'Photo Gallery' to learn more about the tor and surrounding landscape
  • To visit, start from one of the car parking areas in Princetown. For example, there's a large car park by the Princetown National Park Visitor Centre. Follow the heavily worn track that runs south east from the town. You'll see South Hessary Tor in front of you as the track climbs gently domed moorland
