Monument Number 1072661

Hob Uid: 1072661
Location :
Devon
South Hams
Holne
Grid Ref : SX6759070470
Summary : Prehistoric earthworks on Holne Moor which have been interpreted as the remains of either stone hut circles or cairns. Scheduled as cairns.
More information : Centred SX 67597047. Two disturbed hut circles overlain by later clearance material lie at the foot of a steep N facing slope above the right bank of the W tributary of the Venford Brook. The huts, at SX 67597048 and SX 67597046, are largely infilled with small boulders and rocks and measure 6.5m and 5.5m in external diameter respectively. Both possess off-centre hollows roughly 0.5m deep and neither displays evidence of a former entrance. The fact that these features appear to be terraced into the slope would preclude their interpretation as burial cairns as suggested by Butler (1993 Map 60).
