Irishmans Wall

The Irishmans Wall is as is named, a wall built by Irish men on Dartmoor!! Built around 1820 this wall runs for nearly a mile from Cullever Steps up and over Belstone Tor, it is believed (and below photos do point to it) that the wall continues over towards the River Taw. The wall has all but fallen now but its path is obvious as it splits Belstone Tor from Higher Tor.
