Cothland Tor

This secretive tor is tucked away on the northern edge of an ornate private garden called 'Cothland', its landscaped ponds and cascading waterfall a marked contrast to the woodland you've just passed through.

The bulk of the outcrop, however, is overgrown and the vegetation conceals its stature well. Consisting of a mixture of granite bedrock and boulders, the outcrop must be viewed from the public footpath that runs between Combe Barn and Hammerslake.

The meandering woodland right of way itself passes a multitude of moss covered boulders that would satisfy the visitor.
