Stacombe Rocks

Stacombe Tor, Mardon Down East Tor

There is a small ruined rock pile scattered across the eastern side of Mardon Down on the slopes above Stacombe Farm.

Several large boulders are found here that are readily visible from the minor road between Cossick Cross and the Headless Cross (Maximajor Stone) presenting as a small tor. At close quarters there are several good sized rocks here, one being a compact fissured outcrop of at least 7 feet in height on its south side.

The name of Mardon Down East Tor has previously been offered but this fails to do justice to its obvious location above the farm.
