Next to Fingals bridge is a pub called the Anglers rest, this is where I made my way up, jump a small river and scramble up the steep slope.
But this was the hard way (anonymous though) the easier way would be to park in the small village of Preston ask permission and take an easy stroll up the easy way.
Fantastic views all around.
Three ramparts with three slightly staggered entrances and an out of place looking big stone in the ditch near the top, quite well preserved banks and ditches, and amazing views ,especially down to the river Teign and Fingals bridge
