Easdon South Tor
Leaning Rocks Tor, Marmor Rock
This, a distant outlier of the main Easdon Tor, is a magnificent tor that is described by Steve Jenkins in a letter to Dartmoor Magazine (2017), residing on the slope well to the south of the summit and triangulation point. There are at least four rock basins on the flat surface of the summit rocks to observe.
There are some exceptional rock formations and caves to see here which far surpass any outcrop at its much more well-known neighbour up on high.
Despite not being marked on Ordnance Survey Maps, this outcrop has been described by Josephine Collingwood (2017) in 'Dartmoor Tors Compendium', with a suggested name of 'Marmor Rock' given the tor's resemblance to giant marbles. Also, on the 'Dartefacts' website, it has been given the title of 'Leaning Rocks Tor' on account of the tor's leaning stacks. The names from these sources, however, are unauthentic as they are based on appearance rather than actual position in relation to plots of land or proximity to farmsteads.
