Monument Number 439824

Hob Uid: 439824
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Peter Tavy
Grid Ref : SX5303076440
Summary : Bronze Age cairn.
More information : (SX 53047642) Cairns (NR). (1)

A ring cairn, 27 feet in diameter, north of Cox Tor. Examination
yielded no trace of an interment. (2)

A truncated cairn, possibly a ring cairn as claimed by Breton in 1912
and 1926. Diameter 10.0m height 0.3m. (Grinsell makes no reference to
excavation). (3)

A cairn with diameters measuring 10.0m by 10.4m and 0.7m high, with a
rather straight western side. The centre is uneven, probably as a
result of excavation, but there is a distinct rim around the
perimeter. Overall it measures 2.7m wide, 0.3m high on the inner and
0.7m high on the outer face. No kerb or retaining stones are visible.
The profile suggests a rimmed platform cairn (see ground photograph
and plan).

Surveyed at 1:10000 on MSD and at 1:2500. (4)

SX 5303 7644. A ring cairn as described by authority 4.

See RCHME Cox Tor Survey (1/2500 scale). A further table of information on the cairn is held in the archive. (5)
