Blackingstone East

This small tor can be found about 300 metres to the north-east of the main Blackingstone Rock in woodland and consists of three flattened outcrops on the slope, this above being the uppermost and largest of the group.

They are pleasing to the eye, and the woodland setting adds to their appeal. They have no name that we are aware of, but as they reside on the hind of Blackystone, they should be associated with it, dubbed Blackingstone East.
