Langdon Rocks

On the northern side of Easdon Down and to the north of the tor of the same name is an interesting pile of rocks, despite their appearance being ruined and rather scruffy, found high above Langdon Farm.

Noted by Max Piper in 2018, a couple of large granite boulders on high are the most prominent features here, amid scattered rocks, but the extensive clitter that spreads through the gorse and bracken on the western side is solid evidence that a larger outcrop once stood here; evidence of what is essentially a ruined tor at this site.

Langdon Rocks can be espied from Easdon Tor, and a path connects the two where a boundary stone bearing the letter 'B' is passed to the left at SX 72992 82443, one of several marked across the Down at this point by the Ordnance Survey, with extensive views to the west and north afforded of the dramatic Hameldown Range and rural East Dartmoor landscape.
