Petre's Cross - South Dartmoor
Petre's Cross - South Dartmoor
The shaft of Petre's cross at Western Whitebarrow. The tip of Red Lake is in the background. The rocks are part of a crude shelter built into the ancient barrow by 19th century peat workers. This is a very exposed place and in bad weather would be a grim place to stay.
