Eagle Rock (Chase Wood)

A towering mass of metamorphic rock on the banks of the Double Dart at the point where it flows around the north edge of Holne Chase. It is best viewed from below, on the good track as its summit is overgrown. It lies on Private Land.

Walking beneath, it is impossible to capture its entirety in an image. Crossing says; "...and immediately below us, is Eagle Rock, under which the Dart makes its great bend." Arrange appointment for access.
