Holystreet Manor Cliff Face

An interesting cliff face of rock extends uphill above Holystreet Manor near the small town of Chagford. It looks as if the rock was cut to enable the lane to be built.

The rock type is thought to be granite, but its appearance certainly questions this. The cliff face sits beside a country lane and is easily viewed.
