Butterdon Down Tor

On the northern side of Butterdon Down, in a plantation recently cleared, and extremely close to Willingstone Rock, is a sizeable granite tor of considerable proportions.

Despite its close proximity to the aforementioned rock, the outcrop is on the other side of the road and is hardly related. It is quite impressive from both afar and close up. The tor is on Private Land but can be viewed from the road.
