Birch Tor with

Aces Fields

Haytor Midsummer

Crockern Tor

The four distinctively shaped fields near Birch Tor are said to mark the spot where gambler Jan Reynolds dropped his cards as he was carried off by the Devil.

Haytor, with its panoramic views of both moor and coast, is probably the most distinctive and well-visited tor on Dartmoor.

Crockern Tor is reputed to be the home of Old Crockern, the ancient spirit of Dartmoor, who keeps his fearsome pack of Wisht Hounds in nearby Wistman's Wood and hunts the moors on dark nights.
