Best described by William Crossing; ".. Ashbury Tor, beautifully draped with climbing plants, and half hidden amid heather. The spot is altogether very charming, and the visitor should by no means omit to include it in his rambles." Whereas gorse has overtaken the heather, this non-granite tor, overlooking the East Okement River and Moor Brook, is beautiful, best viewed within the tree line.
