Summer Hill Boulders (Manaton)

Two giant, rounded boulders flank the driveway/footpath to Tanglewood that runs down from Cross Hill, about a quarter of a mile to the north-east of Manaton village.

The largest, just to the left of a field gate, is seemingly propped upon the wall or at least has been used to form a natural part of the boundary, with a gatepost situated in front of it.

The other boulder, set across the road, is the less prominent of the two and presents as a fissured mass part involved in a hedge.
