Milland Rocks

With the walker so focused on the idyllic Wray Brook, the rocks above can easily be overlooked. They are a substantial collection of small, jointed granite boulders and outcrops straddling the hill slope. The trees obscure the true size of this ruined tor, but the area of which it covers is surely enough of a reason to get it mentioned.

Once spotted from the path below, they are obvious, yet no name seems to be attached to them until Max Piper first gave them recognition in a blog post in 2018.

The name of 'Milland Rocks' has been afforded since the surrounding plots are named as such on Tithe Maps.
