Pepperdon Hole Rocks

At the far northern end of the Woodland Trust's Wray Cleave, there is a scattering of outcrop-like boulders just south of Pepperdon Hole and Pepperdon Hall Lane.

This is where the higher 'wood path' shown on OS maps peters out, but climb above this and you will begin to discover mossy outcrops.

The highest part of the tor is a small wall, perhaps the largest and most impressive section. Access to this woodland is difficult as the tracks are indistinct and the hillside is steep so tread with caution.
