About This Item

This beautiful geocoin depicts ancient Thirlstone which is on Dartmoor National Park, Devon and described thus in 1848 by S. Rowe (as quoted on legendarydartmoor.co.uk):   

 ‘Watern Tor is one of the many remarkable natural formations of the granite rock which will repay a more particular examination. It consists of a series of piles, rising from the ridge of the hill, the stratification of which presents the appearance of laminar masses, in a horizontal position. The two piles at the N.N.E. extremity, in one part, near the top, approach so closely as to appear to unite, when seen from some points of view, leaving a large oval aperture in the tor, through which moormen say, a man can ride on horseback. But on a closer examination, it will be observed that there is an interval of at least one foot wide in the narrowest part; and in the widest, the piles stand about eight feet apart, leaving ample room for man and horse to pass through. This aperture appears to have given rise to the name of Thirlstone by which part of the tor is known.’,        

Rowe, S. 1848. A perambulation of the ancient and royal forest of Dartmoor, Plymouth: Rowe and Hamilton & Adams.
