Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 438883

Hob Uid: 438883
Location :
Devon
South Hams
Shaugh Prior
Grid Ref : SX5900066000
Summary : A possible cist is recorded at this location.
More information : Two stones in Drizzlecombe, standing parallel to
each other and resembling the longer sides of a cist, exist
eastwards of the Giant's Basin (SX 592669). (1)

Nothing to fit this description exists to the east of the Giant's
Basin. Worth could, however, have meant it to apply to the
probable cist on the west side of the Giant's Basin (SX 56 NE 44),
the description being appropriate. (2)

Both this site and SX 56 NE 44 are recorded in the same article
by Worth, which suggests that they are separate. There are two
stones here but at SX 56 NE 44 a large stone resting on three
smaller ones. (3)
