Hob Uid: 1044005
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Challacombe
Grid Ref : SS7161042690
Summary : A low ring bank was alleged to be visible on air photos. However no physical evidence of such a feature could be determined during ground inspection.
More information : SS 7161 4269. A low ring bank north of Wood Barrow seen by McDonnell(a) on air photos(b).

The NGR given falls on rather wet, rough grassland crossed by hollow ways (SS 74 SW 135). It is astride the Devon/Somerset County Boundary; near the summit of the ridge; and overlooks the valley of the Barbrook to the north. A Stone setting (SS 74 SW 114) lies about 180m to the NW, Wood Barrow (SS 74 SW 13) is some 160m to the south and there are several barrows along the ridge to the west. As such it is an excellent situation for a cairn however no trace of this feature could be found. (1)
