Higher Knowle Wood South

A much better defined stack of rock can be found on the south-western edge of Higher Knowle Wood just to the south of an old byway that runs from the road above Hatherleigh Farm to the hamlet of Knowle.

The small vegetation covered tor here reaches a height of at least 20 feet on its west side with another flattened outcrop in the field nearby.
