Westhill Rocks

A collection of granite can be found on the edge of the densely wooded Lustleigh Cleave to the west of both Higher and Lower Hisley. Higher Hisley Tor itself lies to the north.

It comprises one large boulder amid various other rocks propped up against a barbed wire fence. A public footpath runs to the west of the rocks below.

There may well be more to this tor than meets the eye at first; when seen from the field gate to the south of the houses at Hisley, more obvious outcrops can be seen. The name of 'Westhill' is shown on the Tithe Map for the Parish of Lustleigh, hence the tag given.
