The East Dart has one of the most interesting sources of any of the rivers that start on the high moor of Dartmoor. For most of the year there are just dry deep cuts through the peat, but after heavy rain these are transformed into raging torrents, that make these cuts through the peat. This cache has been placed on a river bend, very close to its source, high above one such deep cut and hopefully above the water level! If not, the cache could end up in Dartmouth.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This caches is located in the Okehampton Military Range where live firing occurs. You must check out the Firing Notices before entering the ranges. DO NOT ENTER THE RANGE WHEN THE RED FLAGS ARE FLYING. Never pick up any objects, they may be unexploded devices.
The weather on Dartmoor can change suddenly and unexpectedly and ALL types of weather conditions can be experienced. Please ensure that you have the correct clothing and map & compass (and know how to use them). Please do NOT rely solely on your GPS.
I would like to thank the Dartmoor National Park Authority for their kind permission to place this cache, which has been placed according to the geocaching guidelines.
