Prince Hall Rocks

This is a pair of granite outcrops, either side of the river, connected with a bridge over the Blackbrook River and visible from the B3357 to the north.

The name also covers the small outcrop to the west, albeit much less impressive, as located in Ken Ringwood's Dartmoor's Tors and Rocks book at SX 6140 7410.

Hemery first mentions it, however; "Some hut-circles are seen at the south-west foot of the hill, and others are involved in the rocks of a diminutive pile, called Prince Hall Rocks, at the foot of the peninsula - the name being shared by a correspondingly small pile on the opposite bank."
