Lake's Copse Tor
A little further along the old and now private mine track towards Beadon Lane from Twizzle Tree is another tor this set just inside that part of the wood known as Lake's Copse. It is dominated on its west side by a huge dark rounded outcrop with other rocks nearby.
First noted by Tim Jenkinson in February 2016 as a rather dark and brooding eminence in the shady woodland, a subsequent visit to the area with Paul Buck in May 2020 revealed that the tor also extends below the track where several large boulders are scattered above a path that leads down to Beadon Brook where an ancient single slab clapper bridge survives at SX 82496 81854. There is also a higher quite substantial outcrop whose height and stature is almost completely shrouded in luxuriant vegetation.
At little more than 30 metres above the track, nearby extensive clearing of trees and vegetation from the area in 2019 means that the main rounded part of the tor is now much easier to see from below and it is interesting that the light that has been cast across the granite in that time along with a recent prolonged spell of dry weather has somewhat changed its appearance causing the rocks to dry and take on more of a tor-like shape and distribution. Be warned this tor is on private land but is accessible.
