Neadon Cleave North Tor

A fine small tor is set on the steep slopes of the far northern edge of Neadon Cleave little more than 50 metres below the footpath leading to Horsham from Foxworthy Bridge.

There are at least three ruined piles here extending downhill through the trees, the southernmost of which presents as a huge, overgrown tower of rock invisible from above until you are standing directly on top of it.

The northern rocks are more pronounced although it is the middle pile that is the most impressive: a long emergent rock face with irregular, widely-spaced jointings, as pictured above.
