Great Rock Copse Tor

This is a fine outcrop sitting fairly central in the wood of the same name. All around this tor sits much of the mine that typified this area, which is why I will highlight the signs telling you to stick to the paths through here. The good news is that this tor sits right by the path, to both sides of it. The rocks to the lower side of the path are pretty huge and you can get a good view of them from the path. Being in the middle of the wood there are no views from this spot and there are also no firing ranges near here.
