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.

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.
