Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This cache is at Horne Hole Tor, not marked on Ordnance Survey maps but located above Princetown very close to North Hessary Tor and the TV mast.

The cache itself is now two clip and lock boxes with a log.

Please try to leave it as hidden as you found it and enjoy the views.

There are about twenty tors visible from this vantage point including the nearby tors of North Hessary and Rundlestone, the slightly further tors on the Staple ridge, the magnificent Great and Little Mis tors, and the numerous tors found on the Beardown and Littaford ridges either side of the West Dart river.

Fur Tor can just be seen on the horizon almost due North, behind the vast nothingness of Black Dunghill and the prison enclosures.

An even better vista can be gained from the nearby North Hessary Tor, which includes the South Moor and even more tors.

For a quick find, there is room for a car or two at the bottom of the mast access road near the telephone box. If coming this way please walk to the stile a little higher up than the enclosed tor rather than trying to jump the fence.

Further parking can be found in Princetown and the surrounding area, and there are plenty of other worthwhile caches in the vicinity.

The stile is a ladder style, and dogs will need to be kept under control as there are often animals in this enclosure.
