Mill Bottom South

Lustleigh is a haven for small tors, gigantic boulders and overhanging rocks. In that part of the village known as Mill Bottom, to the south-east of the hamlet of Wreyland and close to the course of Wray Brook, there are two separate and distinct rock outcrops.

The southern pile is more like a cliff face edging to the waterside the rocks split and filled with vegetation.

A public footpath runs through each area to allow for viewing.
