Chase Wood Rocks

Perched on the summit of Holne Chase, facing north above the iron age hill fort below, this is a collection of short sedimentary outcrops with grand views glimpsed, through the trees, of the Webburn valley and Buckland Beacon.

Far below, there is a large clitter field within Chase Woods, that suggests a larger tor once stood on this promontory that is surrounded on three sides by the Double Dart.

Private Land. Arrange appointment for access.
