This Dartefact is visited by the following walks:

A curious tinners’ hut with a collapsed chimney, a possible ‘keep safe’ and an inscription. Around 1840 Sam Parr and his family moved in. There is a small ‘outbuilding’.

Fascinating inscription carved into a granite block ‘HC 1753’ (below). This suggests the inscription was made before Sam Parr and family dwelt there. Personally I’m not entirely convinced about the ‘H’. I think it’s ‘+C 1753’, but ‘H’ seems to be used in the research. I have even wondered if it’s a ‘new’ Dartmoor Cross? Someone appears to have tried to make the inscription legible by marking it with charcoal?
