Highbury Bridge Rocks

The remains of a small ruined tor can be seen from the road on the right hand side approximately 50 metres uphill from Highbury Bridge heading towards Gidleigh.

It forms a cluster of overgrown vegetation covered large outcrop-type rocks that are hidden in a field on Private Land above the bridge.
