I don't know about 1847 but I do know there is one there just above
Okehampton. We found it on Holiday a few years ago by going towards the
old station at the top of the hill and carrying on up the lane over the
new A30 road, and there you are into Dartmoor. Lots of ponies and sheep
on the left and a go forsaken army camp on the right. It looked from the
1940s but there might have been something there before.
The view from the top of that hill was breath taking that late summer
evening with a golden sunset, looking back over Okehampton and into the
countryside. How different today!!
Bye for now
