Pethybridge: The Crags

A fantastic giant crouching and rounded boulder is set in Private Land at 'The Crags' high above the village on the hillside at Pethybridge. The squat outcrop is hidden in trees but can be seen to the left of the road descending towards Lustleigh.

More boulders are part involved in the garden and beside the cottage above here at the start of the descent. Later speaking to the owner at 'The Crags', we were informed that they don't actually own the tor, but the outcrop is also known as 'The Cob Loaf' due to its distinctive shape.
