Briefly mentioned as a "ridge of rock" by William Crossing, but more attention paid to it by Eric Hemery; "a weathered rock-ridge lies on the side of Royal like a massive cyclopean wall, its line contouring eastward above the right bank, where it swells into a small and beautiful tor known as Hurston Castle (approx 1050 feet)."
