Monument Number 441145

Hob Uid: 441145
Location :
Devon
South Hams
Ugborough
Grid Ref : SX6580059800
Summary : Stone row and cairn
More information : (SX65815997 to SX 65855986) Stone Row (NR)
(SX 65855985) Cairn (NR) (1)

The row has apparently been double, but since only seven stones
still stand, which together with six sunken stones form the fixed
points now determinable, it is difficult to ascertain the
original spacing. The lines were probably about 3 feet 6 inches
apart and the spacing between the stones about 3 feet. The length
of the row is 370 feet as measured from the centre of the cairn
and the direction of length is N 20o W. The largest
standing stone is 2 feet in height. The cairn, at the south end
of the row is 50 feet in diameter with only two stones remaining
of the retaining circle.(2)(3)

The description and dimensions given by R.H.Worth are accurate.(4)

Fourteen stones now visible, no obvious evidence of it having been a
double row.(7)
