Copperwood Rocks

These huge and quite striking boulders are set in the private grounds of Copperwood but can be viewed from the wayside and seem to form part of an extended rocky ridge that runs parallel with the road but at some distance to it.

The rocks are possibly linked to the nearby cluster at Brake and the magnificent rock field higher up above the gardens of Rockholt.
