Bowermans Nose

nr Manaton, Devon

Quick Guide
See below grid for details

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 more information.

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 quote the CIN Page Ref at the bottom of the Planning Grid above. To print the planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.

Please submit information on locations you discover so that this system continues to grow.
