Steps Bridge Rocks

Just within the parish boundary and clearly marked as an outcrop on OS maps and lying above Steps Bridge there is a huge embedded rock face running parallel with the river and above the path that leads westward towards Clifford Bridge.

Its summit rocks are only just visible through the trees even in the winter months and some of the lower rocks nearer the path contain small caves.
