Dury Farm Rocks

Stannets Rocks

First described by Sanders and Watson (1996), this is a small pile scattered either side of farm enclosure walls on the east side of the East Dart River and to the west of Dury Farm.

There are some fair sized boulders at this spot and a large flat outcrop.

The plantation in which they lie is recorded as Stannets on the Tithe Map so an alternative name of Stannets Rocks would seem appropriate.
