Recent extensive logging of the plantation on the lower west slopes of Sloncombe Hill has revealed a good collection of emergent granite. Whilst this is on private land, it can be viewed from the section of Public Byway and Bridleway that runs between Lower Horselake and Ellacombe but be quick, as replanting has already begun on the hill and these outcrops will disappear in the next few years.
There looks to be three principle emergent outcrops surrounded by scattered boulders with the right pile, as you look across from Ellacombe, being the most exposed and therefore most striking.
The Tithe map for the Parish of North Bovey names this plot of land as 'Homer Clay', a section of the estate known as 'Grennawell', with modern OS maps showing the nearby farm to the south-east as 'Greenawell'. Our thanks go to Steve Grigg, who spotted these outcrops back in October 2018.
