This is on the main route from Tavistock to Okehampton, a route apparently favoured by the local highwayman. Once caught they could end their days hanging from the gibbet here. It is possible that an iron cage also existed where villains were placed until they starved to death!
Today, there are extensive views of Dartmoor and Brent Tor with the Gibbet Hill trig point near by.
I would like to thank the Dartmoor National Park Authority for their kind permission to publish this cache.
