A fine stack, camoflagued by moss, creeping ivy and the overhanging branches of nearby trees, is situated right on the parish boundary of Hennock (south) and Bovey Tracey (north). It would have likely been a significant landmark for the miners who worked the area in days gone by.
They would have no doubt taken the old track, long forgotten on modern Ordnance Survey maps, that scales the wooded slopes from the house below called Stonelands, heading to a parcel of land surrounded by now neglected drystone walls, where a ruined linhay and suspected settling pit reside beside another outcrop documented elsewhere on this website (see Lower Stonelands Linhay Tor). The track hugs the parish wall and when it reaches the perimeter of the linhay plot, now without its gate, the stack can be found straddling the wall. The modern visitor can access the stack by going west through the woods from the permissive path that runs the length of Shaptor Wood.
It could be argued it is technically in both parishes, but the majority sits within Bovey Tracey. It would have made a fitting natural boundstone, but we have no records of it being used as one.
