Cherrybrook Rocks

Cherry Brook Rocks

A collection of granite, nestled on the west bank of the Cherry Brook at the head of Hollowcombe Bottom. To the east, there is a wall that leads to Braddon Tor and Broad Down, to the south, a path takes you to Lower White and Longaford Tors.

Little is known regarding reference; the only mention we can find is on the Legendary Dartmoor website, in a list of named rocks, and a short description; "Small outcrop below Lower White Tor."
