This is the location of the first ever letterbox to be situated on Dartmoor, believed to be in 1854 by James Perrott of Chagford. Nowadays it is a permanent letterbox in a small concrete shell. The letterbox itself is located at a quite desolate spot on the moor, not at a high point but instead to the south of a large boggy area. It is best approached (well at least most easily) from the North, following the military ring road (by foot) from Okehampton Army Camp. You will need a map and compass and to check the live firing times in the area if you are planning a visit here. It is worth a visit if you are interested in letterboxing due to it's historic nature.
