Master Rock, The
The Preacher's Stone
A modest non-granite outcrop with clitter near the hamlet of Zoar, south of the Wheal Jewell Reservoir on Horndon Down in the Parish of Mary Tavy.
First described by Crossing; "..we speedily arrive at the hamlet of Zoar, consisting of a few cottages by the side of the road running from Mary Tavy to Lane End. Here we see the higher part of the down, and may observe a large mass of rock near the well of an enclosure."
"This is known as the Master Rock, and here Billy Bray, the celebrated Cornish preacher, was wont to hold open air services during his visit to this neighbourhood."
