Doccombe Rock

This is a very large isolated outcrop on the far eastern side of Mardon Down that is part involved with an old overgrown newtake wall that runs right through it.

The rock is best seen from below where it presents as an impressive huge jagged overhang.

Views from this spot sat on top of the rock are exhilarating especially southward where long down in the valley below is the village from which it takes its name.
