Artist's Description

Sunrise in July at Bowermans, Dartmoor,Devon, England. Bowerman’s Nose is a stack of weathered granite on Dartmoor, Devon, England. It is situated on the northern slopes of Hayne Down, about a mile from Hound Tor and close to the village of Manaton at grid reference SX742805. It is about 21.5 feet (6.6 m) high and is the hard granite core of a former tor, standing above a ‘clitter’ of the blocks that have eroded and fallen from it. Its height was exaggerated by writers in the 19th century and earlier, who also described it as an ancient object of veneration. A theory that its name was derived from the Celtic fawr maen, the “great stone” was refuted by R. Hansford Worth who pointed out that the correct Celtic form would have been maen fawr, so it could not have mutated into “Bowerman”. A John Bowerman was buried at North Bovey in 1663 and the name also appears in a Dean Prior register of 1772, so it is possible that the name is of no great antiquity. (Wikipedia)
