Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 35191

Hob Uid: 35191
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Lynton and Lynmouth
Grid Ref : SS7066349743
Summary : A large upright boulder alleged to be a prehistoric standing stone.
More information : SS 708496 South Cleave; standing stone, classified under Bronze Age. (1)

No standing stone could be identified at South Cleave (at SS 706494) or in the vicinity of Grinsells NG ref, 250m to the NE. Both areas consist of outcrop on a steep NW slope (2).

SS 70663 49743. A large upright boulder lies Some 200m northwest of Grinsell's NGR, and about 1m north of the road. It is 1.5m high and 0.6m square; it leans slightly to the south-west and is split at its base. Immediately north are steep scree-covered slopes and this stone appears to be just one of the many large natural boulders from rhis scree, although it is the only upright feature.

There is a strong probability that this is the "Standing Stone" referred to by Grinsell. It is doubtfully a prehistoric standing stone.
