Old Hill Rocks

Old Hill Tor

With the Middle Brook to the north, the Red Brook to the south, and the Bala Brook to the west, this small tor is composed of large boulders atop low bedrock.

It was first described by Eric Hemery; "The lower, south-east slope is named 'Old Hill', and on it lies a small group of rocks, a miniature tor in fact, known as 'Old Hill Rocks'."
