Mardon Down Rocks North

Of the two main rock groups on the western side of Mardon Down, an area of open moorland north of Moretonhampstead, this is the northern outcrop. Whilst much larger than the southern group, it is less interesting.

However, the views from here are splendid, with much of the north moor visible from this tor. Below and to the west is a small car park to access; to the east is where the Mardon Down Stone Circle and several other antiquities reside, the former being the largest on Dartmoor.
