Hangingstone Hill is one of the highest points on Dartmoor, being the same height as Cut Hill at 603m and only 18m below the highest point of High Willhays. Because of its height and position on the North Moor there are spectacular views in all directions from this hill.
Hanginstone Hill gets its name from the famous Hangingstone rock which has a prominent position not far from this cache. Originally a Logan Stone, sadly it no longer rocks.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This cache is within the Okehampton Military Range where live firing occurs. You must check out the Firing Notices before entering the range. DO NOT ENTER THE RANGE WHEN THE RED FLAGS ARE FLYING. Never pick up any metal objects, they may be unexploded devices.
