Great Warmpit Copse Tor

Another of the fine rock piles in this part of the wood, this time in Warm Pit Copse where a huge array of giant boulders and outcrops are scattered on the slopes above a small stream.

One of the more interesting outcrops we playfully nicknamed 'Giant's Teardrop'. The tor in Warmpit Copse certainly dwarfs anyone who is stood below it.

The tor here opposes the rocks at Kelly Mine across the valley side and there is a curious man-made pond below. First noted by Max Piper the rocks at Warm Pit are on Private Land.
