Ryders Rocks

The name of this group of rocks sounds far grander than the actual outcrop on the ground. Quite why OS have decided to name this outcrop on the OL26 Dartmoor map I don’t know. There is barely anything here. Just a small group of rocks gathered together and that is it. The views to the Avon Dam are excellent from here so that is a decent reason to head to this area but that is about it. There are no firing ranges near here.
