Lizwell North Rock

High up on the slopes of the private plantation of Lizwell Wood, there is an exposed wall of granite, of a similar style to Lizwell Rock but much smaller in stature.

Its top is an untidy vegetation-covered ledge, the ground around littered with decaying branches and like most of these woodlands, care must be taken on approach. Its size is better appreciated when viewed directly beneath, a height of about ten feet, with a bracken fringe drooping from its top like a bad toupe.

Lizwell Wood is incorporated into Buckland Woods which is private land, however, a permit can be obtained from Fountain Forestry.
