Little Beardown Tor

This is the smallest of the Beardown Tors and to the south of the three main piles, often forgotten as being the fourth in the group, it is indeed much smaller in comparison, but is a fine feature. Seen from the Holming Beam area from the west as a small rock outcrop, it could be named Little Beardown Tor given its stature.
The Beardown Tors are a collection of nine outcrops, apparently, but four of them are most prominent. Despite popular OS maps marking these tors collectively as one entity, each outcrop is distinctively separate and for this database, we feel a little leeway is permitted in order to describe them.
One of the most easily recognisable groups of outcrops on the moor, they can be viewed from the B3212 and B3357 roads near Two Bridges. The best way to reach these four is from the car park at Holming (Omen) Beam.
