With ample parking available in several car parks situated on the main Tavistock to Princetown road, Pew Tor is easily accessible whilst being an imposing Tor visible from many parts on this part of the moor. It sits high on Whitchurch Common overlooking the Walkham Valley with impressive views all around. Nearby is the Grimstone and Sortridge Leat which is one of the oldest leats on Dartmoor, its original purpose being to supply the medieval Manors of Sortridge and Grimstone near Horrabridge. The leat is still part of the water supply network today. Situated beside the leat, is Windy Post or Beckamoor Cross, one of the medieval crosses marking the route of the Abbots’ Way.
