The name of this hill is a contentious one. Stats House Hill is a name used in Eric Hemery’s book ‘High Dartmoor‘, where he also mentions both Winney’s Down and Maish Hill, the latter being a corruption of ‘marsh’. Stats House Hill appears to be associated with the whole hill and the summit where Stats House is, whereas, it seems, Maish Hill is a name used to describe the east flank of the hill above Maish Hill Brook. Winney’s Down appears to be used to describe the huge boggy plateau to the south.
