Monument Number 438562

Hob Uid: 438562
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Sheepstor
Grid Ref : SX5811067520
Summary : Alleged stone row : this feature lies at SX58116752 on a W-facing hillslope which is generally stone free and under close-cropped grass with some heather. There are a number of sub-surface linear stony bands or lines of geological origin which protrude through the turf and run down this gentle slope on a roughly NE/SW orientation. The stones identified here as a stone row(s) appear to be a part of this geological formation and consequently are of very doubtful archaeological origin.

Nothing there. (2)

(SX 58126753) Situated 130.5m north of an enclosed plantation
on the northwest side of Ditsworthy Warren, on a west-facing
slope at 305m )D, a double row of stones can be seen (with some
selectivity) running up the slope, nine in one row, four in the
other, totalling 39.0m in length. (see illus card). Its
orientation is 86o from true north at the west end of the row.
Several of the stones are level with the ground and none is more
than 0.2m high. The maximum deviation from a straight line
between the stones at each end is 0.1m. This is probably the
row seen by Breton but is not entirely convincing, being in an
area where there is a considerable amount of protruding stone and
lacking any cairn/standing stone/Blocking feature, etc., at
either end.

Surveyed at 1:10 000 on PFD for AO records only. (3)
