Broadun Rocks Outlier
Part of a collection of short granite outcrops on Broad Down. Well away to the west and at a higher elevation is a lowly outcrop that is little more than a small bump with some rocks extending south.
We learn from Eric Hemery (1983) that the various outcrops straddling the down are collectively known as Broadun Rocks and that they are never referred to as Broadown Tors, this being a misnomer introduced in error in the original version of Dartmoor A New Study in 1970 edited by Crispin Gill. It turned out to be a total misprint and should have read 'Beardown' along with Fur Tor for the erroneous 'Lur Tor' that featured in the same sentence.
Yet despite all this Ken Ringwood (2013) still uses that discredited name as an alternative to describe the outcrops on Broad Down in his book on Dartmoor Tors.
