Coffin Wood Tor
Brousen Tor (Kitchener)
Hidden away on the northern side of the magical Coffin Wood at a place where you might not expect to find a tor, is a huge outcrop of pale coloured rock with scattered boulders above and below. Easily reached from a public footpath to the north, the tor is very little known and was first espied by Mike Kitchener.
Set right on the edge of the trees and part enveloped by them about half a mile to the north-west of Brousentor Farm, the tor seemingly teeters on the slope above the fast flowing River Tavy.
A particularly fine characteristic of the rockpile is the presence of some impressive green moss-covered boulders that are embedded in the floor of the wood. At first thought, by Mike Kitchener, this could be an alternative location for Brousen Tor, but we believe this not to be the case, hence the name given seemed appropriate.
