Becky Falls Tor

The area around Becky Falls abounds with shadowy rock piles but most are within the private woodlands. This small tor, however, is set outside of the attraction in a small copse above the road to east of the car park.

The lower part is the most impressive where a massive sloping outcrop of rock is propped upon other boulders that have tumbled downhill. A little higher through the wood is another outcrop at SX 759 799.
