Standing 6.6m high, Bowerman's Nose is a stack of weathered granite on Dartmoor, Devon. It is the hard granite core of a former tor, standing above a 'clitter' of the blocks that have eroded and fallen from it.
Local legend relates that a huntsman called Bowerman lived on the moor about a thousand years ago. When chasing a hare he and his pack of dogs unwittingly ran into a coven of witches, overturned their cauldron and disrupted their ceremony. They decided to punish him, and the next time he was hunting, one of the witches turned herself into a hare, and led both Bowerman and his hounds into a mire. As a final punishment, she turned them to stone.
