Bearacleave Tor

The Walrus, Walrus Rock

A quite magnificent tor hidden well below the path that runs through Beara Cleave (wooded cliff) National Trust woodland towards Little John's Walk and Shap Tor.

This fine rock stack piled on the slopes resembles a giant walrus. More of the tor exists above and below this point overlooking what appears to be huge gully or excavation in the hillside.

This is right on the border between Hennock and Bovey Tracey and is little more than 200 metres above John Cann's Rocks.


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