Showery Tor - Bodmin Moor
Showery Tor is a rocky outcrop on a ridge-top approximately 0.6 kilometres (0.37 mi) north of the Rough Tor summit. The Tor is a prominent landmark for a wide area. It consists of a natural outcrop enveloped by a giant man-made ring cairn and was thought to have been a religious focal point. The granite outcrop is reminiscent of the "Cheesewring" and made of individual blocks on underlying outcrops formed by erosion along horizontal fractures in the granitic mass.
