Any pointers on how to get to the Devon Sent boulder at Bovey Woods? Heading for a family Christmas and expecting a couple of sessions either on the moors or in the woods depending on weather. I have visited the woods years ago but not been back since. Does anyone have a grid reference for example?

Not a grid reference, but.....

You park here:

I seem to remember there's a fairly obvious path heading into the woods about parallel to the field boundary to the left. You go along that, I think it becomes more faint (it isn't the path marked on Google, I don't think, because it doesn't intersect Little John's Walk that I recall), but you stick near ish to the edge of the wood. You come to some clean boulders where there's a few traverses and things ( Beckham Part 2 (V3)) where the path swings right a bit. From there I don't recall as much of a path (you don't swing right) but you keep heading in the same direction as you've come from, down the hill.

From the parking, follow the faint path along the edge of the field (not the main oath), when you get to some boulders head left a bit, which is still following the field in a different direction. Blunder around down that way a bit and you'll find it. You'll be above it, so it looks very un impressive until you're right below it.

about here I reckon...
