Broada Stones

Two scattered granite outcrops situated on the west bank of the East Dart River, and upstream from the Sandy Hole Pass.

Given that the rocks are situated at Broada Marsh, the reasoning for the name is obvious, however the origin is unclear and our only reference to it is Mike Brown, in his gazetteer. If anyone can enlighten us, please let us know.
