Cratcliff Rocks (Defended Settlements and Cave)



At the foot of Cratcliffe Tor is a hermits cave which is thought to have been inhabited in medieval times. On the wall of the cave is a 4 foot carving of the crucificion.
In 1549 local records show a payment made to the hermit.... the cave is now behind a metal fence (altho' the gate is always open) with yew trees either side of the entrance.
Worth a look.
