Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 438977

Hob Uid: 438977
Location :
Devon
South Hams
Shaugh Prior
Grid Ref : SX5822065200
Summary : A disturbed, flat-topped mound containing several large boulders lies immediately E of a break in the Willings Walls Reave. The outline of the feature is rather irregular and there is no evidence to suggest the presence of a cist or kerb. It seems most likely that this feature was created from material derived from the reave when the breech occurred. Scheduled.
More information : SX 58216520: A cairn situated near a reave (SX 56 NE 123)
on a north-west facing slope at 330.0m. OD. It is of earth and stone
and measures 4.5m. by 3.5m. and is 0.5m. high with a slightly
flattened top. It is almost certainly prehistoric in origin and
probably sepulchral although another possibility is that it is stone
gathered for the repair or construction of the reave. Found during
investigation.

Surveyed at 1:10 000 on MSD. (1)
