Home PageReturn to Dartmoor menu Leather Tor, Dartmoor  
One of the most well known and recognised tors on the moor. Leather Tor forms one angle of the high triangle formed by itself, Sharpitor and Peak Hill lying between the northern side of Burrator Reservoir and the main Yelverton to Princetown road. It is a impressive steep sided peak with extensive clitter fields and sheer drops of a 100ft or more. The views from the top of southern Dartmoor are magnificent and well worth the climb. One explanation of the origin of the name Leather Tor is that it comes from the Anglo Saxon word hlead meaning steep or cliff.
