|Description ||This is a lovely cross, believed to have been carved from a prehistoric menhir.
It stands about 1.7 metres tall, and is just beside the B3212 road near its high point as it crosses the moor between Moretonhampstead and Postbridge.|
|The Two Moors Way footpath goes NE up the hill behind this cross. If you pick up the footpath on the opposite side of the road it goes west for a little way then swings north to Chagford Common, which is one of the easiest ways to access Hurston Ridge stone rows.|
|Oh, yes - and just down the main road is one of the highest pubs in the country - the excellently atmospheric Warren House Inn! A fire constantly burns in the grate - though how they survived inside the bar during this July heatwave is anyone's guess! When Hamish and I popped in there in November to dry off after a walk we found a very selfish female hogging the best one! (..fire, not bar!)|
