Rattlebrook Hill, Lydford, Dartmoor National Park

Rattlebrook Hill, Lydford, Dartmoor National Park

Rattle Brook is a relatively small waterway flowing from high moor down to the River Tavy. Amicombe Hill curves east of Rattle Brook. Rattlebrook Hill rises steeply to the west of the brook. It's topped by a small granite outcrop called Chat Tor. It's fringed by much larger and more impressive outcrops such as Sharp Tor (West Dartmoor) and Hare Tor.

Rattlebrook Hill is shallow domed and can get boggy after a sustained period of rain. It's in a popular section of the National Park for walkers and is relatively easily accessible from the car parking areas at Lanehead and behind The Dartmoor Inn at Lydford.

Rattle Brook Mine (Disused) is on the north eastern side of Rattlebrook Hill. The ancient travel routes Lane End Track and the Dartmoor Path pass over the southern side of the hill.
