Monument Number 441154

Hob Uid: 441154
Location :
Devon
South Hams
Ugborough
Grid Ref : SX6590059300
Summary : 3 possible fallen standing stones.
More information : 'A' at SX 65905932, 'B' at SX 65975935. Two prone
long stones. Origin and purpose, if any, doubtful.(1)

There are two possible menhirs, on Beacon Plain, 500 yards east of
Hangershell Rock. The more easterly stone measures 18 feet 4
inches in length and 19 inches by 26 inches at the base. The
other stone lies 57 yards away on a bearing 26 degrees south of
west. It is 18 feet in length, 5 feet 6 inches wide at one end,
and tapers to a blunt point. The stones are completely isolated
on a grass moor, and have none of the characteristics of surface
boulders. If they were menhirs they are the largest known on
Dartmoor.(2)

Three stones on Hangershell Down lie in a straight line (fig.15)
suggesting that they are fallen menhirs.(3)
