From Butter's Tor. Low tor slowly becoming grassed over.RichardM25/08/2018
On a six Tor circuit from west with L and Darren. Despite its engigmatic name King Arthur's Hall - a low walled scruffy enclosure to the SW has yielded little clues as to its origin and use. It could do with a makeover and a marketing manager as lack of any evidential link with a fabled King Arthur certainly hasn't been a problem for English Heritage attracting 200000 tourists to Tintagel Castle each year. Could this not be the second stop on a King Arthur pilgramige to feast in splendour in a reconstructed great hall? Or will it remain a place to sit on a damp rock in the mist and eat your sandwiches far from the nearest plastic sword kiosk?Chris Pearson21/08/2018
Rough grass, multiple tops- from Butter's and onto Hawk TorDenise 25/05/2018

If doing as a single ascent there is plenty of parking at Casehill to the west.After passing through the wood, turn left as far as the access path into the farm buildings. Turn right and head upwards.moorsman17/06/2016
Continuation of walk from Hawk's Tor 307m. Descended NNE to col (one barbed wire fence to scale), then track north over Shallow Water Common to ford stream from Priddacombe. Then leapt over the deep De Lank River at a narrow point and more easily north to summit. Walk continued to Butter's Tor. Solo.Man of Kernow105/04/2016
