The southermost point of Dartmoor and one of those points that you see from the A38 as you pass Ivybridge. There are plenty of lanes leading up from the Ivybridge/Bittaford road from which an easy ascent of Western Beacon can be made. The old Redlake train track started here and helped move the clay from Redlake to the processing sheds below Western Beacon. The views across the South Hams to the sea are breathtaking from here and well worth coming to see on a good day. There are no military firing ranges in this area.
