Welcome to this searchable database celebrating the numerous tors and significant rocks of Dartmoor National Park, the well known that are shown on Ordnance Survey maps and those that are little known, merely remarked upon in the literature yet still not shown on maps. Then there are those that are the hidden tors, obscured on the slopes of East Dartmoor buried beneath a canopy of trees near to Lustleigh, Hennock, Manaton and Moretonhampstead. Currently, with 854 locations listed and 3204 photos, we believe this is the most definitive collection available of both lesser and well-known tors and rocks and has involved at least a decade of exploration.
Search for a Tor

We are delighted to announce that this database includes the excellent work of Tim Jenkinson, who has spent the last decade documenting the outcrops on East Dartmoor. For more on his work, visit here.
You can also drop into our "Team" page to find out a little more about Tim and the other members of the Tors of Dartmoor team. In addition, we acknowledge the works of a few individuals.
Visit our "About" section to understand the reasons for the database and the format we have presented this information.
