Hound Tor Down Outcrop
Holwell Rocks (Ringwood error)
This small outcrop of rock with boulders scattered beneath is mistakenly labelled as Holwell Rocks by Ken Ringwood in his 2013 book of Dartmoor Tors.
This is an alarming oversight given the previous descriptions available by both Crossing and Hemery and a pin point GR for the Rocks in question by Mike Brown that places them so much further to the south. In light of this evidence the outcrop here cannot possibly be mistaken for Holwell Rocks as it actually resides on Hound Tor Down above and some 250 metres or so to the south west of Grea Tor Rocks.
This little outcrop looks down to Grea Tor Rocks on Houndtor Down, beside a wall. It sits in a picturesque spot, overlooking the popular Hound Tor. To the south is Holwell Lawn, which in May has an abundance of bluebells.
