Beardown Man Standing Stone, Devon


  • Located in Two Bridges, Devon, South West England, England
  • From afar, across the valley cut by the River Cowsic, Beardown Man Standing Stone is reminiscent of the black slab in Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey'. A thin, tall slab of granite, it breaks the skyline near Devil's Tor and is visible from miles around. Standing alone in a giant landscape, Beardown Man Standing Stone is an incongruous and slightly surreal sight. We'd very much recommend a visit
  • We've positioned Beardown Man Standing Stone on Google maps. Zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its exact location. To visit, walk in from the car parking area at Holming Beam and Long Plantation. Cross the River Cowsic at this bridge and follow one of the army tracks up towards the rocky outcrops of Beardown Tors. You'll connect with another track that takes you to Lydford Tor. Stiles take you over a wall north to Devil's Tor. This is the beginning of the high north plateau so the terrain is wet and boggy. Beardown Man Standing Stone is unmissable from Devil's Tor. Note the remote Fur Tor to the north
  • Beardown Man Standing Stone is big. Its size is reminiscent of the largest stone at Drizzle Combe Standing Stones and the large stones at the northern end of Stalldown Stone Row
