Willingstone Rock

This is a large lump of granite sitting right beside a lane in north east Dartmoor. This stone sits just inside a cattle grid on a lane down to the farm of the same name. There’s no way to climb the rock as the sides are too steep but you can get up close to it, and look through the gap in between the two larger rocks. The views from here are a little hindered by the higher ground around, with Pin Tor in view up to the east. There are no military firing areas near here.
