Pepperdon Rocks North

Pepperdon Tor

Dr. Peter Sanders tells us: "Pepperdon Down has an extensive rocky summit, the name Pepperdon Tor seems appropriate. The rocks of the tor are prominent from various viewpoints but no name seems to be attached to them."

These are the northern rocks on Pepperdon Down, a small tor in its own right but situated on Private Land. The tor was also described by Steve Jenkins.
