More information : A cairn, part of a group east of Selworthy Beacon, lies at SS 92458 47952 (SS 94 NW 15). It was surveyed using differential GPS as part of the RCHME Exmoor project. The cairn comprises a stony mound, 8.4m NS, 11.2m EW and 0.5m high. The southern side of the mound has been damaged by WWII activity (1).

It was not possible to identify the Bronze Age cairn above (1) on the available photography. This is probably due to the slight nature of the mound. (2)
