Hollowpark Rock

Another latter-day omission by the Ordnance Survey having appeared by this name on maps as late as 1949, Hollowpark Rock has been rediscovered in 2018 for a new generation by Max Piper.

The Rock itself is a huge sloping outcrop that is visible from the lane running by Clampitt to the south.

Although a path runs to the summit of the feature the lowest and most impressive part is set in the private enclosures of the aforementioned farm and is not accessible.
