Cator Common Rocks

Cator

In the far north-west corner of the Parish boundary is this small tor of two compact but quite ruined piles, the lower with an overhanging rock sits a little way to the north of the road opposite Riddon Brake not far from Bellever.

It was first mentioned by Tim Jenkinson, and later by Ken Ringwood.
