A micro on top of a hill. Please visit in good weather as the views are amazing. Prepare for Dartmoor weather too as it's an hour's walk to get there.
On Ter Hill are two crosses known as the 'Terrill Posts' and they stand about 100 yards apart. The westerly of the two crosses is in fact a replica of the original one and was erected on the 21st of June, 1994. It is dedicated to Tom Gant, a well known Dartmoor enthusiast and author, as a nearby plaque will testify. The original cross can be found in the garden of the High Moorland Visitor centre at Princetown where it was moved to for its own protection.
The cache is within view of the other cross.
From both crosses you will be rewarded with the most amazing panoramic views.
If you want a good walk come from Whiteworks, to Nun’s cross farm, pass by Goldsmiths Cross heading towards Fox Tor and skirting the mire, take in Childes tomb then head off east to join the bottom of the enclosure wall. From Mount Misery Cross you can descend down to the river Swincombe by following the wall. Towards the bottom turn west (left) along the dry Wheal Emma leat. The path is quite eroded but passable. Cross the river at the co-ordinates given and then just follow the wall back to Whiteworks.
