Hob Uid: 1476312
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Brendon and Countisbury
Grid Ref : SS7621443241
Summary : A circular mound is visible on aerial photographs west of Brendon Two Gates, Exmoor. It is located in a prominent position on high ground overlooking an un-named spring and Farley Water, suggesting it may be a prehistoric funerary monument, possibly a cairn. However, it also lies close to an area of post medieval peat cutting, and may be the remains of peat stacking or other activities. Further survey is required to confirm a precise date and function.
