Hangingstone Hill, Devon


  • Located in Belstone, Devon, South West England, England
  • The high ground in Dartmoor National Park is to the north west. Hangingstone Hill, at 603 metres, is one of a number of big, domed hills on this landmass
  • Hanginstone Hill is unremarkable in terms of rock structures but it's deep in the Park and offers a great sense of the scale of this wilderness
  • We'd recommend a yomp to its army hut and small rocky outcrop as part of a walk to see some of the Park's more dramatic tors such as Watern Tor and Steeperton Tor
  • In winter, when the ground is frozen, or during hot months, when the ground is dried out a little, one can cross difficult terrain west to the famous, and isolated, Cranmere Pool Letter Box
  • Whilst the route might be unspectacular, the easiest way to summit the hill is by the army road leading up from Okehampton Camp by Okehampton. Clearly, you can walk in from all directions. From the north, via Wild Tor and Cosdon Beacon and Hill is fun
  • To the north west, you'll see southern England's highest peaks Yes Tor and High Willhays
