|Within Dartmoor National Park, Hayne Down
contains a number of wierd and unusual rock formations many of which have local
names. This is said to be the most famous and is a tower of rocks which looks
nothing like a nose.
Bowerman's Nose is a stack of weathered
granite. It is situated on the northern slopes of Hayne Down, about a mile from
Hound Tor and close to the village of Manaton. It is about 21.5 feet high and is
the hard granite core of a former tor, standing above a 'clitter' of the blocks
that have eroded and fallen from it. With a little imagination, it is possible
to see the profile of a face.
As well as the rock there are some stunning
views to be had of the moors from here.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick
Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be
added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has
been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather
than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to
create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far
Please let us know any other information that we
can add to the Further information and Planning Grids or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always
wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be
correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of
course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have
any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page
then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you
