Thanks to Richard Hall and Terrill Thompson for contributing to these details. (View history)

Highest point on the wild windswept moor of Dartmoor, grid reference SX580893 OS map 191. Mostly made up of Granite which at one time time may have had a height greater than the Himalayas but subsequently eroded. The whole area has a very mysterious feel to it and is very isolated. The summit is in the middle of an army firing range so if you are going to visit check that it is safe to do so by contacting Okehampton police station.

Thanks to Richard Hall for this description.
