Beadon Rock

A mostly overgrown but nonetheless impressive squat outcrop can be found in the trees above Beadon Lane.

A track leads to the rocks from the road where tree felling has recently occurred. The main rock somewhat resembles the summit of Shap Tor in Bovey Country.

What you find once at the top, after the short scramble, is a large summit ledge where you can admire the decent views and steep vertical drop.


This outcrop is accessible to the public.
Enjoy, but please behave responsibly and always follow the Countryside Code.
