Black Tor Fall

Black Tor Fall

This waterfall on the River Meavy is in an area which has been heavily mined by the tinners. The writer William Crossing describes these falls as "... one of the beauty spots of Dartmoor. This is Black Tor Fall, where the stream comes swiftly round a heathery bank to glide over moss-covered stones; where dripping ferns margin the waters, and the mountain ash waves her branches gracefully above them."
