Black Rock - Saturday, Oct 23, 2010
Black Rock is difficult to spot as you approach from the west because you arrive at the River Lyd from above. It's worth a visit though as it has a memorial plaque, and the Lyd is quite photogenic. It gives you a good spot to sit and contemplate the climb up to Bray Tor.
