Water Lane Logan Stone

Water Rock (alternative site)

A large logan-style granite boulder, nicely displayed on its own flat granite plinth. It is a stone's throw from the settlement of Water.

It sits immediately beside an old, albeit, now private, track mapped by Ordnance Survey Maps.

It is thought, being located beside a natural hill spring, that this might be the outcrop known as Water Rock. However, it does not match the tor described by William Crossing (and rediscovered by Tim Jenkinson) that is located further east and nearer the hill fort on the edge of Houndtor Wood.


Warning! This tor is on private land. Should you wish to visit, always seek permission from the landowner.
