Geocache Description:

A traditional cache placed in one of the most remote areas of Dartmoor's south moor.

So this is where it starts! The river that feeds the huge Avon Dam and then winds its way through southern Devon to Bigbury-on-Sea starts right by this cache. Not many people see it like this - a stream a foot across!

I have rated this cache as Terrain 3.5 as it is located in one of the most remote parts of Dartmoor's south moor. It is surrounded by several mires and direct access is very difficult, so plan your route carefully.

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). Please do NOT rely solely on your GPS.

Cache placed with the kind permission of the Dartmoor National Park Authority and in accordance with their geocaching guideline.
