Rock Copse Tor

This tor is 3 outcrops which resemble in appearance a cow pat or michelin man. They are however very large rocks all stacked neatly and sitting a hundred metres below Bowden Tor on the eastern side of Shaptor Woods. The way in is the same as Bowden Tor, by coming in from Furzeleigh Lane, over the stile and into the woodlands to the left of the main path, then drop down past Bowden Tor to this one, which sits just beyond a broken down wall. Head below this outcrop to understand the real size of it. Being this far in the woods means no views at all from this one and there are no firing ranges near here either.
