Hob Uid: 1221512
Location :
Devon

Ilsington
Grid Ref : SX7533076840
Summary : A possible tor cairn on the E outcrop of West Emsworthy Rocks
More information : Centred SX 7533 7683. A possible tor cairn on the E outcrop of Emsworthy Rocks (east). The cairn consists of an eliptical mound of stones, lightly covered by turf, measuring 20m by 12m. Some doubt has to remain as to the origins of this feature as it appears to have been remodelled in more recent times, possibly by the military. A similar feature exists on Saddle Tor at SX 7515 7634 which is surrounded by stanchion fittings for a flagpole. (1)

For plan see RCHME 1999. (2)
