Tor is a ca. 50 m diameter circular pit with a partial encircling rim rise, which is considered to be of post-glacial impact origin. The structure has been studied with ground penetrating radar, electric and magnetic measurements.

An information folder has been prepared and the site has been accessible from a nearby road (Tor – en nyligen bildad meteoritkrater, by Herbert Henkel).
