Gibbet Hill

Gibbet Hill sits just to the west of the A386 as it heads north out of Mary Tavy, Wheal Betsy sits on its lower slopes to the east. There’s a fair few parking spots along the A386 to start from and if approaching from this side its a very easy walk to the summit. The views are extensive in all directions with Brent Tor and its church looking majestic to the south west. The Willsworthy firing range is to the north east with surrounding tors in view. Cox Tor and Standon Hill are to the east as you look from the trig point at the summit of Gibbet Hill
