Monument Number 1087668

Hob Uid: 1087668
Location :
South Hams
Grid Ref : SX6827070480
Summary : Two medieval or later clearance cairns. The northern one measures 3.0 metres in diameter and is 0.6 metres high while the southern mound measures 1.7 metres in diameter and stands 0.5 metres high. Neither possesses traces of cist or kerb and both are undisturbed.
More information : SX 68277050 and SX 68277047. Two cairns (Butler 1993 Map 60).


The two features depicted as prehistoric cairns by Butler are the product of medieval or later clearance. The N feature, at SX 68277050, measures 3.0m in diameter and is 0.6m high while the S mound measures 1.7m in diameter and stands 0.5m high. Neither possesses traces of cist or kerb and both are undisturbed. They lie in an area which has been subject to medieval or later agrarian activity which has effaced most of the prehistoric monuments in the immediate area. Their survival in this area and their undamaged fabric suggests that they are allied to the later activities.
