Brock Hill Tor
The lanes between the small towns of Chagford and Moretonhampstead are strewn with beautiful hamlets and sometimes hidden rockpiles that find shade amongst the often dense foliage. This makes many of them most difficult to notice, coupled with the fact that several reside on private land, however, this particular sprawl of granite nestled above Great Weeke is fairly easy to spot from below.
The hill here seems to have been once known as 'Brock Hill' with mid 19th Century Tithe Maps allocating this name to many of the plots to the east of Great Weeke. The tor can be spotted amid a small, oval-shaped copse which is best seen from the lane heading west from Drewston Cross, first passing through an immense wayside cutting at SX 71891 87566 whose walls tower above the onlooker. After the cutting, a field gate on the right provides a good viewpoint from which you can espy the outcrops.
The rocks are evidence of an emergent tor with what appears to be several low-lying outcrops just below the spot height (203m) of the hill. The lowest rock resembles a large chest propped against other rocks and trees in the bottom of the copse.
