Cheesewring (Lynton, Devon)

.

A mass of eight stones, towering to the height of thirty-two feet; so called because it looks like a gigantic cheese-press. This is probably a natural work, the effect of some convulsion. The Kilmarth Rocks, and part of Hugh Lloyd’s Pulpit, present somewhat similar piles of stone.
