Blackadon Tor

Granite tor sitting on the top of Blackadon Down, with views north to the Hameldown Ridge and Bonehill Down. There are hidden outcrops spilling down the hill to the Webburn.

Although known, Blackadon is not afforded the recognition it deserves. The main outcrop appears to be overgrown and unremarkable, but venture to its north side and you will encounter a more impressive face, and a few more outcrops that are missed.
