Hob Uid: 1044121
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Brendon and Countisbury
Grid Ref : SS7478044300
Summary : A small circular earthwork was noted on air photos. Ground inspection proved this to be a Bronze Age cairn measuring 6m in diameter and 0.7m high. It has a small irregular hollow in the NE quadrant which may be the result of stone robbing.
More information : SS 7479 4432. A small circular feature, possibly a hut circle, seen by McDonnell(a) on air photos(b) approximately 150m west of a stone setting on Cheriton Ridge.

SS 74792 44303. A cairn prominently situated at about 375m above OD. on the western edge of a slight plateau in the centre of Cheriton Ridge. The area is predominantly heather with a scattering of rough grass and bracken.

The cairn, obviously the feature seen by McDonnell, is evident as a well-formed heather covered mound, 6m in diameter and 0.7m maximum height. Probing revealed stone just below the surface. A small irregular hollow in the NE quadrant may be robbing.
Its situation, form and content suggest it as a prehistoric cairn.
Surveyed at 1:2500. (1ab)
