3rd Hill of 9 on a long route from Moorgreen village to Ivybridge railway station, climbing Ugborough Beacon and Stalldown Barrow then descending to move around the Water treatent edge, continuing on access land to SE corner where I took a track leading out of Grange plantation to become a footpath on Hanger Down. I veered off to use gate to climb into enclosure with summit West of the rocks. I explored the rocks anyway. Climbed over the fence and continued to Hanger Down Clump and then onwards to take the fp along the edge of Henlake Down leading into Ivybridge. Next hill Tod Moor...Dazingdale03/02/2019

Visited over very wet pasture on a gloriously gloomy raw November afternoon. Summit is on NW side of wire fence and unmarked in rough pasture. Line of rocks apparently cleared from field just to NW are higher but not really 'natural'RichardM19/11/2016
Immoveable rock in grass and nettles in line of cleared field rocks/ decaying wall is probably the HP. A joyously raw, damp November day with gloom intensifying as rain began to fall!Denise 19/11/2016
Ascended from the Cornwood side from the top of Uppaton Lane, headed straight for the clump, before heading of the opposite side.fostersm26/03/2013
