Lower Webburn Tor

Just above Buckland Bridge and beside the footpath on the right bank of the beautiful River Webburn, you'll find a gnarled and scruffy metamorphic outcrop jutting from the hill.

Its low position suggests exposure through river erosion, there being little of substance on the slopes above it.

Brought to our attention thanks to Steve Grigg, it is a miniature outcrop when compared to the larger cliffs and crags that tower above the river upstream.
