Monument Number 440692

Hob Uid: 440692
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Lydford
Grid Ref : SX5247084740
Summary : The earthwork remains of a stone clearance cairn of probable post medieval date.
More information : (SX 52478474) Mound (NAT). (1)

Air photographs show what appears to be two hut circles. (2)

A truncated cairn 10.5m. in diameter by 0.4m. high, visited
6 August 1976. (3)

The mound depicted on the OS 1:10000 scale mapping (1) and described by Grinsell (3) is largely obscured by gorse. It is not of prehistoric origin as it sits upon a number of narrow cultivation ridges associated with the post medieval field system in this area. It is more likely to be a relatively recent stone clearance heap. A similar feature (440693) lies 140m to the west. (4)
