Easily found if you walk uphill from the car park. A word of warning. Take the first turn L if coming from the south and 2nd R if coming from the north on the A386 as the access road is one way S to N. Plenty of Dartmoor ponies around on this southerly finger extension of the NP. Original cap missing, usual litter shoved down the centre pipe. Good views today to the northeast

Views to Yes Tor on Dartmoor

Spotted by chance by my wife while navigating us to Buckland Abbey using the 1:25K map. had to stop and then worked on the Geocache that was there too. Made the find on that as well. A lovely spot and a nice break on the moors.

This pillar has been painted at some point in it's life, but it's position on the edge of the 'moor is taking it's toll and it's shedding this. Other than this, and a bit of repair around the plate, it looks quite happy - it also has it's spider. I'd have thought that this spot has great views, when it's not a wet, and going dark ... one december evening.
