Lakehead Cleave Tor
This is a fine collection of large boulders and flat outcrops on the west side of the East Dart River between Postbridge and Bellever that were espied by Tim Jenkinson during a visit to the area in December 2018.
Most of the rocks are covered in vegetation but extend right down to the riverbank from a prominent spur above it. The plantation in which they reside is recorded as Lakehead Cleave in the Tithe Apportionments of the 19th Century.
One of the earliest depictions of the small tor here comes in 1914 when it was shown on a black and white postcard from Chapman and Son but is incorrectly captioned as Laughter Tor that being a much better known rockpile lying about two miles to the south of Lakehead Cleave. Some discussion on this disparity was provided by Paul Rendell in an edition of Dartmoor News in 2019.
