Geocache Description:

I'm in a wide open space, I'm standing

I'm all alone and staring into space




That's from a 1996 song I particularly like by Mansun.  Now whilst the song won't have the same appeal to all the cachers out there I expect a few of you will appreciate the beauty of a real wide open space. 

An area of moorland which is quite popular with muggle walkers and not really a remote getaway from it all kind of spot.  However, if you haven't got hours to spare for a real hike try coming here.  I'd suggest a three mile circular walk by parking at Harrowbeer and walking along the cycle path.  You can pick up some of the "On yer Bike" series, continue to the "Viewpoint" cache then after crossing over a viaduct look for a path on the left up through the trees.  It's a short, but steep climb.  Once you get up over the top turn around and you will be rewarded with a view of another....... Wide Open Space, weather permitting of course.  To get back to the parking area the walk would be much easier! 

Check out the tree, there's a plaque which reads: PACE, a much loved friend and companion, 30 July 2000.  Clearly a spot much enjoyed by another human and their canine.

Placed in accordance with DNPA guidelines.
