Hound Tor

11.9 Miles TQ13 9XG

The fine remains of this abandoned and isolated settlement lie on the eastern edge of Dartmoor, between the granite landmarks of Hound Tor and Greator Rocks.

The village, which was excavated in the 1960s, consists of a cluster of rectangular longhouses and barns shown to date from the 13th century. However, the area may have been used for summer grazing during the Roman period.
