The Rocks
The Rocks
This grassy area, with its prominent outcrops, is known locally as the Rocks. This photograph shows the southern end; see NS4660 : The Rocks for the northern end, and for further details.

The present photograph shows that it provides a kind of platform, slightly raised above the surrounding area. Long ago, it was also the site of a farmstead called Hillock, of which faint traces can still be seen: NS4660 : The remains of Hillock.

For the woods in the background, see NS4660 : A path through the woods.
