Great Rock Copse Tor

There is a second grand tor in the wood some two to three hundred metres to the east of Great Rock and hidden mine shafts reside both sides of the footpath so it is not advised to stray from it to admire this huge and intimidating tor.

Several TWM (Torquay Water Main) marker stones dated 1858 survive in the area marking the original undergrown piping into the town from the Hennock reservoirs.
