Huntingdon Warren

Huntingdon Warren sits just to the north of Avon Dam and Reservoir, it is famed for it’s rabbit warrens and supply of meat to the tinners of Dartmoor. This hill is pretty much in the centre of the south moor with Ryders Hill, Redlake and Avon Dam around it. There is a large cairn at its summit however the sides are steep, making an ascent a tough one, unless you are coming from the north and Ryders Hill. The easiest way to this top is to come past the Avon Dam from Shipley Bridge, heading around the reservoir to Huntingdon Clapper Bridge, before ascending the hill. There are no military firing areas near here.
