Roughtor Rock Pile

Roughtor Rock Pile

This pile of rocks is situated on one of the three peaks along the ridge that forms Roughtor, the second highest point in Cornwall. You can see the top of Roughtor behind.

These rock piles are formed naturally as part of the erosion process of the granite, with the softer parts being eroded away more rapidly. The best known example of this is on the southern side of Bodmin Moor at the Cheesewring.
