Broadun Rocks

The area of Broad Down is quite a large area of rolling grassland to the north of Postbridge. It sits between the East and West Dart rivers and runs up as far as Sandy Hole Pass. This page covers just Broadun Rocks (black arrow below). Broadown Tor (red arrow below) can be found on its own page also sits on Broad Down about half a kilometer apart. The views from here are pretty good especially to the south across to Bellever Tor and from Broadun Rocks you get good views north to the East Dart Waterfall and to Sandy Hole Pass. The easiest route to Broad Down is from Postbridge following the Drift Lane path which leads out from behind the Dartmoor National Park centre, this path takes you straight to Broadun. No military areas are immediately around Broad Down, only further north and west.
