Northcombe Copse Tor
This small broken tor, first noted by Tim Jenkinson, sits on the south slopes of Northcombe Copse above and to the east of Hawkmoor Park. It consists of three distinct sections. The summit is rather disappointing, a few low-lying boulders, only redeemed by a charming moss clad rock basin; a near perfect circle with dimensions of 26cm X 24cm.
The two lower piles have character and shape. Both present with an upper crumbling outcrop with larger rocks spreading through trees below. The middle group is the most impressive whilst the lower set at SX 804 805 retains a curious upright and weathered pile.
The tor can be easily accessed from the track running below the copse but care must be taken in the area as there are a number of old mine shafts, albeit now fenced off and well signposted, to warn of the danger.
