North Hill

North Hill - the parish church.This throughly unspoilt village is seperated from the moor by the parkland of the now demolished Trebartha Hall estate in the Lynher valley. The pretty winding village street and the large church have fine views of the imposing Hawk's Tor and Kilmar Tor.

Kilmar was quarried for granite during the 19th century and provided employment for some 80 men and boys. The granite sleepers which carried the Kilmar railway are easy to find along with the carved 'fleur-de-lis' on the tor which were put there to protect the summits from quarrying. From the top of Kilmar on a clear day you can see the North coast and even out to sea Lundy Island - between the tors a well preserved settlement of bronze age hut circles.
