Monument Number 441245

Hob Uid: 441245
Location :
South Hams
Grid Ref : SX6514059950
Summary : Stone row
More information : A stone row about 42 metres long is situated on south
sloping ground at SX 65145995, just north of the marshy Butterbrook
valley. It is aligned south south west/north north east, and
terminates at the south end in a hollow-centred ring of turf and
stones of 2.5 metres diameter east/west, 3.2 metres north/south.
The first stone in the row is 10.35 metres from the centre of
the terminal, thereafter the spacing becomes about 3 metres. The
maximum height of the stones is 0.67 metre. The row becomes double
for about 12.5 metres (four to five pairs of stones), with a distance
of 0.4 to 0.5 metre between rows, after which only the second row
appears to continue.
At 73 metres from the terminal there is a single orthostat 0.5 metre
high, standing 3.25 metres off centre south from the projection of
the rows, at the edge of a small clitter of broken stones. A
third row, irregularly spaced and not showing much above ground,
meets the double section of the rows at an angle of about 10o on
the north-west side, extending westward to about level with the
terminal. Visual projection east-ward along the third row appears
to be in line with the orthostat.(1)
SX 65055994-SX 65035993 stone row clearly visible. May be a second at
SX 65105995-SX 65075998.(2)
