I was on the way back from Lydford Gorge to Parke and decided to drive across the moor. I passed The Warren House Inn and got to Bennett’s Cross when a rainbow appeared.
It is not entirely clear who Bennett was – he might have been the owner of a nearby tin mine and the cross was erected to mark his land ownership boundary. Another theory is that Dartmoor crosses are in fact ancient Bronze Age Standing Stones (it is located on a ley line) which were subsequently reworked into the shape of a cross by early Christians.
