Brent Tor
Brent Tor
Brent Tor is the remains of an ancient volcano. It is formed from volcanic lava erupted undersea around 320 million years ago in the Carboniferous era. The hill stands at 330 metres above sea level and about 60 metres above the surrounding countryside. The church on the top dates from around the 13th century although human activity is known to go back to an Iron Age fort on the hill. There are great views from the top.
