A small granite rock on the north slope of Manga Hill, south of Hugh Lake with good views eastward over the Shovel Down antiquities.
You might be wondering why such an insignificant rock would be named, but Hemery assures us; "Small rock outcrops occur on the north-east shoulder of the hill of which one, an elongated lump of bedrock known as 'Manga Rock', bears its north face with the letters 'GP', for here runs the boundary line.."
The map above is not a navigation tool and we recommend that the grid reference shown below is used in conjunction with an Ordnance Survey map and that training in its use with a compass is advised.
