Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 35424

Hob Uid: 35424
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Lynton and Lynmouth
Grid Ref : SS7397043780
Summary : A pentagonal stone setting of prehistoric date comprising eight stones. Three are upright while the other five are recumbent.
More information : (SS 73984379) Stones (NAT) (1)

Remains of a possible stone circle near Hoaroak on Furzehill Common. Two stones standing, three others have fallen (see plan). Shown on Ordnance Survey (2). (Siting information suggests published entry applies; geographical co-ordinates appear to be in error).

SS 736440. Stone setting in parallelogram with triangle; Bronze Age
(3).

SS 73974378. A stone setting comprising two standing stones 0.5
metres high and 0.3 metres high and five almost completely buried
stones which cannot be reconciled with Worth's plan (2).

There are no other surface indications to suggest the remains of a
stone circle (2). Erroneous NG Ref by Grinsell evidently refers
to this site.

Published survey 1:2500 revised. (3-4)

SS 73794378 a pentagonal setting of stones (not a stone circle) situated on a slight E facing slope in an improved pasture field about 385m OD at the S end of Furzehill Common to the NW of Hoaroak.
The setting is much as planned by Chanter and Worth (2) though it appears that one of the stones has broken into 2 pieces (D and E). C is a small stone just protruding through the turf, perhaps a dislodged trigger stone? not evident on his visit (5).

The monument includes three standing stones, five recumbent stones and the archaeologically sensitive area between and around them. Scheduled. (6)

It should be noted that authorities 2 and 6 conflict over the number of standing stones and it could well be that the third standing stone noted by 6 has been replaced in an upright position recently. (7)
