Gratnor Rocks

Down near the farm on Private Land is this large outcrop hidden in trees and overgrown. It is likely to be the lower part of the rockpiles shown on old OS maps with much more in the vegetation.

Although the small tor is obvious it is more impressive from afar, the road heading downhill east from the large Hound Tor car park. Without the bracken to obscure it we feel that it would be much more impressive.
