Geocache Description:

PLEASE NOTE: This cache is not located in the nearby ancient Boundary Work which does NOT need to be disturbed in order to find this cache.


It was almost 2 years ago when I first decided on this location for a cache when I was placing the Lych Way series. I have not returned until today to place the cache which becomes the second in my Dartmoor Menhirs series, after Beardown Man.

The menhir on Langstone Moor is one of only 12 menhirs still standing on the open moor. Although it is one of the shortest menhirs on Dartmoor at a 2.7m (compared with the tallest at Drizzlecombe of 4.2m) it is sited at the third highest altitude of 434m.

I would like to thank the Dartmoor National Park Authority for their kind permission to allow me to place this cache.

The weather on Dartmoor can change suddenly and unexpectedly and ALL types of weather conditions can be experienced. Please ensure that you have the correct clothing and map & compass (and know how to use them) in addition to your GPS.

WARNING: IN ORDER TO FIND THIS CACHE YOU WILL NEED TO ENTER THE MERRIVALE 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 OBJECTS, THEY MAY BE UNEXPLODED DEVICES

PLEASE NOTE: I have only just noticed that the normal geocaching.com map indicates that this cache is outside the range. It is not, it is INSIDE the range. However, if you go to the range observation post on White Tor on a firing day and ask if you can go and look at the standing stone, you will probably be allowed to do so.
