West Mill Tor Core Stone

Notes: Ken Ringwood explains that: “Core stones are granite blocks rounded by weathering and resting on less weathered rock. They are solid cores of blocks weathered underground and let down on the rocks below when the weathered material was removed, such as West Mill Tor.
