Marked on Ordnance Survey as Longtimber but Mrs. Bray calls this Mary Tavy Rock; "After following this long, narrow, and muddy lane, we at length came to a gate, which we opened, and stood on the brow of a hill. A beautiful sight here burst upon us. Below rolled the Tavy, under cliffs and crags, not of a very lofty but of a most pleasing character; and in the midst of the greensward, on this side the river from its banks, arose an insulated and enormous mass, called Mary Tavy Rock, covered with ivy, lichens, and every sort of rock plant that can, I believe, be found in Devon."
