Places of Interest

  • Winsford Hill
    Winsford Hill is a heath-covered common, managed by the National Trust. The three Bronze Age Wambarrows mark the highest point, with good views to Dunkery, Dartmoor and the Blackdown Hills. It is a popular place to see the pure-bred Exmoor ponies of the well-known Anchor herd. At Spire Cross there is a standing stone is inscribed 'Caratacus Nepus', which means a relative of Caratacus, possibly the British leader who resisted the Roman invasion. However, the stone appears to have been inscribed centuries after his death. It once lay broken but now has a small shelter to protect it.
