I wonder which is oldest, cross or tree?

You sound like you are really getting a feel for Dartmoor now. The navigation is challenging but that makes it even more worth lovely.

Blonde One and I have some history with that tree and boundary stone, we know it well.

Did you spot the wooden posts on Hameldown? Can you guess why they are there?

Blonde Two - it's all good stuff. I'm a convert. I did see the poles. They are either for marking the path in winter snow or for hanging funny hats on.

We have been there in the winter snow a few times (very cold) but you are wrong - think German planes and landing sites :-)

Blonde Two - sounds like a good clue, but I'm still not sure even though I was born in 1939. I look forward to your explanation - perhaps it would make a good Dartmoor post for you?
